something that the u.s. has had to deal with in the past couple of months. is that would be left to the higher authority. the president would have to sign off on any activities like that. that's something that the white house is very interested in doing. as you can imagine, dale. other items on the panel list are not as appealing to the white house. for example, this presidential panel wants to see the head of the nsa and cyber warfare not under the same roof. that's something that the white house disagrees with. >> the president said to address the same issue on friday, how will today's hearing effect that? >> well, we will see today members of this panel including mike morale the former acting head of the cia. who was a security advise discoer, testify and talk in detail about their recommendations and they should get a warm reception, because the head of the committee, is pushing for his own set of reforms, many of these items that the committee has the panel has put forth as well. so we will see some back and forth, giving his address on friday, the president told reporters today at the white house that he is still working on fine tuning some last desessions on that. we

rear-view mirror today. in september part of that bridge closed forcing those to sit in traffic for four hours. that speech could be a make or break one for the government. >> dell, we have been saying all someday, don't write him off today, he still remains one of the most powerful republican governors in the country, but yes, this is looking like make or break for the governor, especially as new allegations come out for him, almost by the hour now. he is going to be speaking here at the state house in trenton new jersey in less than an hour, at 3:00 sharp, to give his state of the

production costs than the next lowest bid. giving it to a firm with which they had tied. he alerted the department of housing and urban development, telling the inspector general the cash could have been spent on victims the inspector general is now investigating. this latest end comes day after he was forced to apologize for a traffic scandal. kristy said he knew nothing about it, and apologized to the people of his state. >> i had no knowledge, or involvement in this issue. in it's planning or execution. and i am stunned by the abject stupidity. >> the aid responsible for ordering it was fired others were pushed down the pecking order. kristy went with to fort lee immediately to apologize to the mayor in person. he cautioned he wanted to wait and see what the investigations turn out, now new allegations are coming from jersey city's democratic mayor stephen who released emails showing that meetings with the governor and many senior appointees were canceled in july, hours after he refused to back the governors bid for re-election. an email to the mayor reads within the past hour, i have received phone calls from the lists four names all of which canceled the meetles on the 23rd. until all this came to lighted, kristy has been the big guy in new jersey politics who appeared poised as a key contender to top the ticket in 2016 for the white house. could these additional allegations make a run for the presidency more difficult? first, today, he must get through his state of the state. >> and late word from the kristy administration, they say the white house gave them permission for the ad in which he appears with his family last summer, and the company that made the ad said got the contract before they decided to put them in the advertisement. >> you briefly

may god bring us victory. >> these are some of the changes. the military will be charged with appointing the defense minister for the next two presidential terms. several give the president more powers, including making it easier to dissolve parliament. the police too will be empowered with the creation of a new council comprising senior officers. critics say this will protect the force from civilian oversight. the draft says that the state is committed to the tenants of international human rights law. egypt's army chief cast his ballot at a polling station. >> this constitution is a reflection of egypt's current situation. along with the challenges egypt and the egyptian society faces. therefore, there's a great focus on free comes, rights, without neglecting any segment of society. >> controversial the draft retains the militaries right to prosecute civilian whose attack it, civilians can still be tried under military tribunals. rights group say the changes also fail to ensure transparency over the military's budget or details of it's vast economic interests. the proposed constitution also bans any party based on religion. further eroding the position of the muslim brierhood who is already been pass fied as a terrorist organization. despite this, another party with a strong religious call has indicated it favor as yes vote moving away from the constitutional amendments would lead to chaos. these are olfactories that effected the parties position. we can confirm that not only are we with saying yes, but we hope that all ejinxes would also vote yes. >> supporters of the ousted president are boycotting the poll. protests against the military continue across the country. security forces fire tier gas at demonstrators at this neighborhood. >> we can never participate and give legitimacy to a regime which fools the people, and tries to act like it is a civil regime. while it is neither democratic nor civil. >> security has been tightened for the vote, but along with peaceful protests this violence. this was the after math of a bomb blast outside a courthouse, just before polling stations opened. no one was hurt, no one has claimed responsibility. this is the first big test of public opinions since the removal of mo hamed morsy as president. those that deposed him have called for a last turn out and a positive result, if they do

what are called brick nations that is brazil, india, and china and russia. being the r. last year overall car seams dropping and as david chuter reporting breaking into those new markets could be a bumty ride for the big 3. >> as auto sales and brick nation stall the next frontier of emerging markets appeared to be the so called future 15. countries mostly clustered in southeast asia, the middle east, south america and north africa. they boast a combined population of 1.2 billion people, and sales today of 10 million cars a year. expectations of economic growth mean sales could reach 14.5 million by 2020. but winning the race to these new consumers will not come without challenges for the u.s. auto makers. for starters many f othese markets already have established players. >> the government in smaller countries tend to favor local car makers. or big car makers that got in there fast. and have relationships with the government. trench makers dominate, and in south a sha they control 60% of the share. regional leader has even built production facilities locally including malaysia and thailand. toyota has taken that brand approach to to rest of asia so the big players are used to being there. >> political tensions can raise speed bumps for auto makers particularly american companies. emerging mideast countries represent the largest new consumer base. they also bring diplomatic complications and sanctions against iran to evolving relationships after the arab spring. the frac mennation may prove tougher for the big three to handle. >> when you get outsites there's been far more numbers of vehicles, types, far more numbers of vehicle brands. >> indo knee seans favor cars that can handle regular flooding. saudi buyers prefer suhs and pickups that can deal with harsh weather, and algerians want inexpensive durable enough to with stand road conditions. you are talking about 1 million vehicles or less, you may even be talking under 100,000. it means you may have trouble designing that vehicle, specifically for that market without the same culture that exists in western countries these new markets can prove a tough sell for all no matter the company. >> it is really the 1900 all over again, in terms of creating demand for automobiles. so for many car maker whose want to compete in the small countries it is forming an auto industry and gets it up to speed. >> david chuter, al jazeera. >> and in some parts of the world like the u.s., the number of miles people drive has peeked and that's another reason why it is essential for auto makers to find

fast in the mountains. >> it is nice to have a story with a happy ending. >> very nice. >> thanks for joining us today. >> america's news headquarters starts right now. >> obama care has a new problem about that? we are about to find out. i am bill hemmer. >> and i am alisyn camerota. we are awaiting a briefing where the latest enrollment numbers show fewer young people are signing up. bret baier is here. great to see you. we know that 24 percent of the people are 35 years old and younger and the administration hoped that number would be close to 40. how big of a problem is that? >> if you ask the analyst and insurance industry it is a big problem. they look at the number and equation and what the pool looks like, it just doesn't add up to the numbers they need. the administration said that they believe like in massachusetts, that young people come in at the end, like toward the deadline of march 31st. that's fine if they do, if they don't, it is a situation where insurance companies could reicalulate the premiums that everyone pays before the next round of premium adjustments later on this year. >> so in 14 minutes from now. we expect jay carney to come out in the white house briefing. and is that how he will spin it? there is a trend in the upswing and waiting to see until march? >> definitely. he will say the numbers have gone exponentially up since the launch that they concede was disastrous. and i bet jay carney will look to massachusetts. a lot of those young people didn't come in until the end. the question is, alisyn, all of the polls and people who are uninsured. they are not buying in to obama care and not saying that that is the right choice for them according to the polls. and if that trend holds, there could be a big problem. the big hinge here that is legislative, is whether the insurance companies will get a massive bail out, if it doesn't all come together by the end of the year. >> that is a big question. if the numbers don't add up, then what? the administration hasn't given us the scenario. and you have marco rubio with the legislation that the insurance company should not get the bail out if the numbers don't add up for obama care and i bet you will see the republicans push that. that is the escape hatch. if the administration doesn't meet the targets. they say there is not numbers and targets they are trying to hit. but if you ask the people on the hill, they are looking at the congressional budget office. 7 million signed up by march and the right equation of young people in the mix. >> one of the things to see is more outreach to young people, what does that look like? >> it looks like more money spent and ads targeting young people and groups going out with the recruitment of hollywood stars to make pitches about obama care. i bet you will see that in the coming weeks. >> brett, one last thing, we heard from the administration that it doesn't matter young versus old, the metric to look at is sick versus data. how many people signing up are truly sick or how many are healthy? >> we don't have the data. the demographic break down female to male. and more females than male and more older people than younger people as the percentages we talked about. the other people we have from yesterday's number. four out of five people signing up so far qualified for some kind of a federal subsidy on a federal level. that is a tax credit situation that is interesting. >> those are something. we'll see what else the white house has to say. brett, thank you for breaking it down. >> negotiators reached a deal on a 1.2 trillion there budget. this is after three years of bitter battle. with me now best selling author called upheffal. lou dobbes. lou, congratulations to you on the new book. and what about the budget deal, great or not? >> it is a great deal. no one is trying to shut down the government or negotiate last- minute nonsense as we witnessed from the white house and congress over the last previous two years. this takes care of this year's fiscal document. it is in my opinion, obviously too much. but it is not well spent and it wouldn't be our government if it was otherwise. but it resolves the spending and brings a degree of order and reasonable expectation. >> wow, that is a reaction i did not expect from you. >> yeah. >> what does it do to cut in the 17 trillion in debt? >> not a thing. unless you include the billion dollars out of the provention of the public health slush fund that the congress could have got ep rid of altogether. 15 or 25 billion and they decided 1 billion just to teach, just to teach the white house a lesson. i mean, bill, as you know. >> lou, you side with barbara, the democrat from maryland, she said it puts the end to shut down, slow down politics. >> i love her reititration that is more powerful than my own. it is over a trillion dollars and wraps up for fiscal 14 and brace ourselves and get ready for a joyous new fiscal year come october 1st of this year. >> i am seeing a smile and not just because of the book. >> tell me about upheaval. what is the point you are making there? >> it is a thinking person's guide to how to fix the mess that is this country and help the republicans if you will be a counter veiling influence against the democrats, and one program after another that doesn't work. the problem is, republicans need a little help. they need ideas, their leadership about how to lead. and strength to lead and to make the tent bigger instead of collapse it and also embrace the tea party rather than pushing them out of the tent. we have some characters in the republican party, and this is just a little test for them. >> all right. we'll take the test then. i know you have worked on it a couple of years. look forward to seeing your ideas in the book. >> thank you, lou dobbes. >> tell me what you think about the budget deal? find me in bill hemmer fnc. >> we are waiting for reaction from the white house about the documents that the president and military advisors knew that the attack in benghazi was terrorism. yet they said it was a spontaneous demonstration that led to the death of your americans, inwhich you hadding ambassador ste ph ans. >> we hear for the first time the sworn testimony of general carter ham. and he debunks speculation that he was removed because he wanted to do more than he was allowed to do by the superiors and white house. chairman of the armed services did the questioning. this is from mckown. you were prepared to go to their aid and someone told you no. and you said you are going anyway. is that a supposition? he replied. no one ever told me no. >> and they did what they could with what they they had. asets were not in position to launch a timely response. for example, there were no u.s. marines in libya despite leon panetta after the september 2011 visit. they were unarmed. and no mention made in the transcripts of gun ships being available that night. and perhaps most vexing was the decision to make the fast team of marines sent as a quick reaction from spain to deplane and change out of uniforms and delaying them for an hour. general ham pushed back against the sending the f- 16 to fly over benghazi would have made a difference. there are differences of opinion and this is the first time we hear from general carter ham himself. >> that clarifies a lot and raises more questions. >> president obama hailing a nuclear deal with iran that is supposed to curb teheran. >> and what will chris christie say. he is facing a widening scandal of widening allegations of political revenge. he will address the law makers that are launching investigations. >> hostage drama here. police facing one of the toughest decisions. whether to shoot a man holding a woman as a human shield. you will see how this ends. hey, the new guy is loaded with protein! really?

>>> governor chris christie's state of the state address getting national attention today. christie will speak to new jersey law makers in two hours. he will address the bridge scandal that is rocking his administration. democratic legislators are launching two special committees to investigate whether political pay back paid a role in the bridge closing. they are live from the state capitol in trenton. what is the latest today, eric? >> reporter: the governor will talk about education and property reform taxes and everybody here wants to hear what he said about the bridge scandal. he will give the state of the state speech. usually they are regulated to congratulations and the chief executive laying out the legislative agenda. this years different with the new committees under way. some legislators want criminal charges against the christie appoint authority ee who took the fifth before the committee hearing last week. and subpeonas are expected to be issued to two close christie aides. one to bridgeit kelly the fired chief of staff whose e-mail ordered the closure and christie's former long- time campaign manager. some democrats don't buy christies denials that he knew about it, others on both sided of the aisle give him a benefit of doubt. >> for me, and the people of new jersey, honestly, i hope it works out that he didn't. if he department, it is bad for the state and really bad for the people of the state, and then different type, obviously whatever actions are necessary will be taken. >> we know by the e-mails that they are troublesome. what i don't want to see a political environment exists as opposed an investigative environment. when you see law enforcement do it many times it is not political. but state house politicians doing it, you have to be careful. >> reporter: the governor is fulfilling his duties. he will go to florida this weekend to attend private fundraisers for the fellow governor rick scott of the sunshine state. first time governor christie will step out on the national stage sense the scandal broke. >> we'll see what happens less than two hours from now. thank you so much. >>> my preference is for peace and diplomacy and now is not the time to impose new sanctions. now is time to allow the diplomats and technical experts to do their work. we'll be able to monitor and verify whether or not the interim agreement is followed through on and if it is not we'll be in a strong position to respond. >> that was the response from the president. he wants to hold off on new safrpgzs against iran. the iranian president told the crowd in teheran that it was a surrender by the west. the former israeli ambassador to the un and mr. ambassador, it is good to see you. you say this deal is not a deal at all? what is it? >> it is a sellout. it is a sellout. it truly is a victory for iran. my advice to the american people, to congress, is don't listen to just the president. don't listen to the israel prime minister and don't listen to me. listen to the iranians and believe them. they mean what they say. the iranians say it is a for iran and a surrender for the big power. >> you brought it up. that's what rahaany said. our relationship is based on iranian's nation's interest. and geneva world powers surrendered to the iranian nation's will. >> it doesn't need interpretation. he says what he means. the foreign minister said this is played on our home ground. we can do whatever we want. whatever we disconnect today, we can connect tomorrow. we the jewish people paid a horrendous price when we didn't listen to the crazy dictator 60 years ago. hitler was ranting around europe. millions and millions including 6 million jews paid the price. believe them when they say they want to wipe israel off of the map and believe them when they say you are the big sattan. don't make the deals. >> are you comparing rouhani to adolph hitler. >> i don't think anyone can compare to adolph hitler. but i think the iranians, they are a terrorist state. terror was never addressed in the agreement. iran yeah support of terrorist groups and hams and hesbollah, and arming of those slaughtering their people. and this is as if you are dealing with your next door neighbor. you are not. we are dealing with a terrorist state that is terrorizing the world and main pep traitor of terror and you sign a deal and by just signing it you solved the problem? >> you have a democratic president who is opposed by members of his own party saying they want the sanctions in place or add to them. what is the rationale, why? why does the president want the sanctions to be eased? >> i think this president doesn't want another war and neither do we or anyone else. i think this president is probably still tired of the traumas of afghanistan and iraq and the american people are as well. and he wants to try every means to solve it diplomatically, that is right, but at the same time don't she the weakness. i know mohammed sarif who negotiated this deal. he served with me at un ambassador, as iran's ambassador to the un when i was israel puss buzz. he smiles, but what happened in geneva, he felt as on the other side, i tired and weak america and a europe that is dying to do business with iran. and manipulated and got the best agreement he could and they are celebrating it now. this celebration is not the birth of a new baby. it is a birth of a monster, believe me. >> mr. ambassador, thank you for your time. we'll speak again, sir. >> i hope so, thank you very much. >> gentlemen, thank you. there is a new lead in the disappearance of madeline mccan who disappeared in 2007. >> a wife's frantic plea for help after her husband was shot outside of the shopping center. the 911 call showed the horror of that moment. >>> we are now hearing a frantic 911 call released by fleece new jersey from a deadly carjacking outside of a busy shopping mall in. the husband left dying on the parking deck and the desperate wife pleading with the dispatcher. >> 911, is this an emergency. >> yes, it is an emergency. called the ambulance. >> they are on the way. it is tough to listen to. it took 18 minutes for the ambulance and the responders could not reach the victim because the ambulance was too tall for the parking deck. four men who allegedly took off in the couple's suv were caught and charged with murder. >>> to another terrible crime case. is this a break through in the madeline mccann case. british police appear to be close to making an arrest. made vanished in port you goal and police are there to arrest three suspected burglars accused of robbing the resort where madeline was last season at three years old. today she would be ten years old. mark furman joins us on the phone. when dow think of this development. british police are going to interview or arrest three suspected burglaries that were in the area that night made disappeared. >> what is interesting about this. they are using phone contacts between the three individuals that were supposed to be at the resort. they don't know the content of that. that is imaginary evidence right now. and then the biggest problem that i see, you have three possible suspects, and you alert them internationally in the media that you are coming to talk to them and allow them to speak between themselves or simply disappear. the correct would be say nothing to nothing and intercept all three in the same time and interview them separately and you might glean evidence if they are in fact the suspect. >> that is weird we all know about this before they were arrested, perhaps the british police are working in tannedum with the portuguese police. but mark, what do make of the notion in general, burglaries and petty thieves don't abduct children. is it possible that it was a crime of opportunity and they were not intending to abduct anybody and maybe went in and saw the three-year-old girl and decided to take her? >> you look at the situation. it is a low- level resort burglary and they are looking for money, jewels and electronics to carry on their person and they are two- bit criminals. they will take a 2 or 3 year sentence if they are caught and turn it into life in prison without the possibility of parole. and on the face, it is ridiculous. and the second opinion of scotland yard is, and absent of any we know, that the burglars went in to the mccann apartment and startled the child, a three-year-old child and you take the child, that is absurd. how about just turn around and leave? >> mark, is it possible that madeline mccann is still alive sen years after her disappearance? is it possible that someone solid her to a child trafficking ring and what are the chances of being found alive? >> i think there is always chances and there is always possibilities. you have to look at this on face value. first, someone who have to have knowledge that the mccanns are at dunner and there was no adult in the residence and they leave no forensic evidence or to the print they were there. and now three burglars that came in and they didn't leave a hair or fiber or dna or finger print and nothing and took a child? to me, this has more, this whole case has more questions than answers. >> mark, you know what the mccanns say that the portuguese investigators botched the case and perhaps there was evidence and they missed it in targeting the parents right away. >> i am not to impressed with port you goal. what are they doing with the three burglars last seven years? they know they are burglars and why rrnt they in jail and questioned and investigated. it is absurd and on the face, i have a feeling that we are getting duped in some way and there is much more information. quite possibly, obtained in some other way than legal channels and they know more than we do. >> that is comforting, and not that we are dupe but perhaps they know more information than they are letting o. let's hope they have development and we can get the piece of the puzzle solved. >> can i add one thing. >> yes. >> if you go to a new's organizations. sometimes they are being surveilled and you want them to move or run or make contacts because you have an eye on them. if that is the case, it might be a crafty investigative tool. if they don't, it is a mistake. >> we'll see what happens over the investigation. >> the white house needs young people to sign up for obama care. how will they do it this time? we are about to find out. >> what caused this man to shot a man in colorado. >> the accused is in court right now. what is data rage, that is next. >> this situation over a cell phone use, to escalate that high? i can tell you, it is very scary, for the fact that two is a movie theater. óqoqúúÑ@ >>> time now for a quick check of the head lines, at least two kids injured in a school shooting in ros well, new mexico. the suspect in custody and school is on lock down and parents told to pick their kids up at a nearby mall. >> southwest airline grounding the piles of the plane that landed in the wrong airport. no one was injured in missouri. >> if you want to quit your job. there is a quit your job app. takes you through a series of steps why they are resigning and crafts a text message that is sent to your boss. >> that is dangerous. >> right. >> especially if someone gets your phone. >> sure, >> and puts on your app. >> ripe for abuse. >> we want to know today. >> what do you quit your job fantasy. tell us the best way you have imagined quitting your job. >> you have 24 minutes to do it. send us a tweet at bill hemmer. >> and the at me at alisyn camerota. >> in the young adults not signing up to the obama care. >> they are the president's base and so why is the white house having a hard time connecting with them. jonathan is a republican strategist and director of super pa c american cross roads. and marjorie clifton is a former consultant of the obama came and ceo of clifton consults. >> the administration hoped to have 40 percent of the young people they define 18- 34-year-olds and by noonly 24 percent. what do the numbers tell us? >> the framework of obama care and logic was the idea that young people and healthy people would sign up to cover the costs and regulations of the program. they are 40 percent off of the target and if the enrollment dead line ended today. we would be in a death spiral. not enough people are in the system and that means rates will be hiked and people dropout. that's the situation we are facing. it shoes no signs of abating what so ever, it is a problem. especially for people who think that obama care will not impact them at all. their rates go up, too. >> how do they change the strategy or make it more attractive other than a guy hanging out in pajamas and sipping on hot chocolate. >> this was part of the strategy and health care analyst knew they would be the late newcomers to sign up. 40 percent of the uninsured in 2012 were of the same age group. not surprising numbers and according to the ka iser number is 25 percent. we are one percentage below and march 31st being the deadline. >> it is not cpr but the defibalator is not put away entirely. how do you change the strategy to get the numbers higher. >> the plan, they hired communication folks for the folks who worked on obama campaign. it is part education. they have set up the penalties that are part of the edkagdz process. first and second and third year, it is only $95 to pay a penalty to not get the health care plan. but once they go on the site, one of the coolest thing. it is like a o'rbitz. we have transparency in the plans and that will drive prices down. >> that was a problem originally you couldn't compare when healthcare.gov was originally launched. secretary sebelius is encouraged by the trend lines and seeing more people seening up in december than november. she saidine at the present levels it can still work. >> this is pure spin. i don't see how they can be pleased with a number 40 percent off of the goal. it doesn't make sense. we don't know how many people are paying for the program. two of the largest health care companies extended dead lines for payments because people were not paying. if you are not paying for the program you are not signed up. and the daily caller is reporting that only eight percent of the people in connecticut have paid. >>un oh. >> if that is combfrp near correct it is like 18 or 20 percent. >> we are out of time. marjorie, you are in the colume of hope and hoping that it happens. and we'll bring you back later in the week. thank you very much. sfshgs and now to this troubling story. no bond for a retired police captain shooting a victim in the movie theater because he was texting. 71-year-old curtis reeves got in an argument popcorn was thrown and then a gun shot and now a 43-year-old father is dead. dr. keith ably is a member of the team and doctor, can you explain this? >> in order to explain this in the spectaculars, you would have to know the man involved and the man who was the assailant and killed another individual. we may have to look at something i call data rage like road rage. we know that when people interact with machines, sometimes they feel emboldened to do things they never would and it is frustrating and people who are vulnerable and explosive and add in technology and a machine, and things can go over the top. >> but keith. >> and be violent. >> dr. ably. you are blaming the victim? >> not at all. >> the victim was allegedly texting and the alleged shooter was ticked off his movie viewing was interrupted and they had a verbal alteroccasion and then the victim allegedly tossed or threw popcorn. >> we have to blame the shooter here. but in understanding it, wow, it was a machine involved. and we know that in road rage there is a car involved and people seem to be dehumanized by the presence of the car and they can't connect to the individual. if what is happening here. we'll need to study these cases and i suspect there will be. someone is irpt acting with the machine and removed from a innerpersonal moment here and there are other people around, and somebody else becomes unhinged. and in interacting with the machines, people do things they would not necessarily do. it could be the guy two rows back as thinks of you as not human. >> data rage. right? >> yes. are there other people talking about this as influencing our behavior? >> this is the way they are talking about this. i get cases from forepzic psychiatrist. they say i am his defense attorney and he did something using the computer i don't think he would have done if it was not from going to link to link and maybe about images of children and with a person who never had any proclivity to do that and no behavior in that regard. what happened and why would two be irpt acting with the machine something different happened that is negative and toxic. same thing here. we know it with cars. let's look for data rage. and we know it with facebook. why would kids bully to the extent they do on facebook? because of data rage. ndr. ably. that is an interesting theory. thanks. >> so far there is no evident to support criminal charges in the irs targeting of cops congroups. an expert said the only solution of the problem at the irs is through an election. >>> i am gretchen carlsson. coming up. big hearing on nsa rules reform happening in our hour. did all of the spying on americans stop terrorist attacks? . the findings might surprise you. and outrage. the fbi said no criminal charges in the targeting of criminal groups by theires. a pastor told parishoners to help themselves to commune. right or wrong. we'll have that on the top of the hour. you just mentioned the targeting of conservative groups. >> top irs officials say there is no evidence to warrant criminal charges. joining us is judge napolitano, fox senior judicial analyst. what the fbi said, they have not found evidence of enemy hunting with the irs giving extra scutunny to tea party groups. but they have big bureaucracy and inepiitude. >> and the way the law is written, the irs has given so much lee way, you almost, almost have to find bribery on the part of the irs agent to look the other way or look more carefully before you find a crime. >> 282 to 8? they found 282 conservative groups as opposed to eight liberal groups and no crime found? >> here is my observation and people need to know this. the culprit is the congress. because the congress has so written the laws that any president, democrat or republican, can use the irs for political purposes without committing a crime. richard nixon did it. bark bookkeeper obama has been doing to an extreme extent. and other presidents haven't done it as extremely as they have. it is congress' fault because they want when their party is in power to have the liberality with the laws. it is subjective and the law is not predictable. how can you predict the president's wrath or political supporters are going to generate more activity by the irs? >> one of the congress people. darril issa said he doesn't trust the investigation in part because it came out that the fbi only just now eight months later intrude the victims and various tea party combroups. >> i share congressman issa's concern and anger and there is nothing he can do. only thing to do is a new election. the president can't run for election and that is moot. and persuading the attorney general to appoint a independent counsel. we are stuck with this. >> this he's not going to do that. we are stuck with this. >> you're saying this dies here? >> yes. there will be political ramifications, some democrats may lose seats in closely contested house and senate seats. this will be an issue, what did you know about it, what did you do about it, how did you stop this in in terms of doing this, the president is free to use irs agents and he has. >> get a congress in there to change the laws so the irs is independent of the white house. that has never happened since the irs has been around 100 years. >> wow, thank you. >> tense moments with life or death decisions playing out in realtime for police in a hostage situation with one woman who was used as a human shield.

[laughter] the point is this: apparently there are very few regulations vis-a-vis the riverfront storage of toxic chemicals in the sovereign state of west virginia. in lieu of cautions the governor had post cautions. >> do not drink it. do not cook with it. do not take a bath in it. >> >> jon: do not feed it through a hose connected to a sprinkler which you then run through it going whee,. do not freeze it in a block of ice and then use your self to stand on it to hang yourself therefore creating a locked room mystery. do not gift to your turtles unless you want them to become prolific -- [laughter] what is the name of company that exploited the lack of scrutiny and regulation of the toxic chemical industry since 1991? >> a company called freedom industries. >> jon: are you (bleep) kidding me?

>> we haven't had a lot of information released to us. two confirmed in the hospital and one in lubbock and one in roswell, there's a possible third child, completely unconfi unconfirmed. as of right now i'm waiting to hear from the police and get information on the specific injuries. >> what do we know about the circumstances surrounding the shooting and was that suspect who was taken into custody, was that person a student? >> actually i am not sure yet, i don't believe so. as of right now there's very little information. i've gotten to the scene and it's one of those chaotic scenes where parents -- panicked parents are trying to show up. they are not allowed to get -- you have to show their identity to get their kids. and the cops are surrounding the area. it's on lockdown right now to ensure it doesn't spread panic anywhere else. this is kind of new for roswell, we're not used to things like this. >> how large of a school are we talking about on lockdown there? >> i'm sorry, what. >> how large is a school we're talking about here? >> not very big by city standards, probably about 400 kids. >> okay. amy voglesang, you're on the ground there, do keep us up to date and let us know what's happening. >> i definitely well, thanks. >> here's the other big political story. in a few hours governor chris christie will appear before the new jersey legislature to deliver his annual state of the state address. despite the bold new education reforms he's expected to outline, that is certainly not what's going to be on the minds of most people watching or likely on the mind of the governor himself. instead, this is the headline that continues to dominate the conversation. two new jersey legislative panels to probe christie bridge scandal. the latest and most significant news being that the newly formed investigative committees are expected to hand out further subpoenas this week. christie is also dealing with headlines like this one. federal auditors probe use of disaster funds for new jersey ad campaign that featured christie. this story is focused on a $25 million tourism campaign including ads featuring the governor and his family. ads that critics say cost $2 million more than a production offer from the next highest bidder. >> i don't think there's any question that this was an effort to promote him. but the problem is it was at the expense of money from the taxpayers that could have been used for other sandy purposes. >> the christie administration denies any wrong doing saying that the ads were quote, a key part in helping new jersey get back on its feet. local columnist bong ingle co-authored the book "chris christie" the inside of his rise to power. let's start with the state of the state address. we know the governor will talk about the scandal. what do you expect he's going to say? >> i think that he will say something up front about the recent news and how he's not going to let that get in the way of his agenda or education reform. he also will be talking about tax initiatives in making streets safer. i think he will mention it but i don't think he's going to take up a lot of time with it. >> jersey city mayor has now come forward saying that he had a strong relationship with the governor's administration but that relationship completely disappeared when he decided not to endorse christie for governor as the "new york times" reports, throughout his four years as governor and particularly in his re-election campaign last year, mr. christie has worked his powers of government as an arm of his political operation rewarding favors to those who rewarded his political ambitions and punishing those who got in his way. >> do we expect more stories like this from other mayors around the garden state to continue to pop up over the next few days? >> i think we expect more stories like this. as people go back thinking about things and about what may have happened back in the summer, they may think, that could have been the reason for that. maybe it was, maybe it wasn't. but the story has legs. it's going to be with us for a while. >> in a press conference on thursday, christie portrayed himself as not a bully or micromanager. again, you literally wrote the book on the guy. how accurate of an assessment of himself was that? >> he certainly delegates and he does dell gate. the thing about him, i have never known him not to be on top of what was going on in his office. he also likes to be informed but that would be up to the people who work for him to keep him informed. as of yet we don't have anything other than what he told us about what he knew. that we may find out in the next few days or weeks. >> really quickly, let's get to this other investigation the governor is facing the audit of the $25 million in federal relief money, the asbury park press release reporting that christie's administration is hiding details about that money. what more can you tell us about that investigation and what they have found? >> that is one of our papers and my colleague bob gordon is the one who did the story. we asked for bids having to do with what was going to handle the campaign. state dragged its feet. we're supposed to get it in 7 business days. we asked for them in august and we got them in december. we're going through all of that. what we found out is that the organization, the agency, that got it actually charged more and is politically connected and makes contributions to political candidates, that sort of thing. the losing campaign does not. that the top of what we found out so far. >> bob ingle, i'm sure we'll talk to you again soon. thank you very much. let's get straight to the power panel. alice stewart and jimmy williams and senior white house reporter carrie brown. the speech will happen at 3:00, the state of the state, we're hearing that he's going to spend sometime at least talking about the bridge scandal. obviously it's not going to be the bulk of that speech, probably just a nod. should we see a different tone than we saw in that marathon on thursday press conference, carrie? >> it's quite possible. i think that chris christie sort of put himself out there in terms of taking all of the hits and taking the questions and going through it. that was really his one shot to be reflective and just let the media have at him. at a certain point we may see this today with the speeches he's going to perhaps turn more defiant and say i'm not going to let this get in the way of doing my job. i spent almost two hours answering questions. i'm happy to participate in any kind of investigation but i'm not going to be hamstrung by this. i imagine that's the tone we'll see from christie going forward. that seems to fit with his personality, which doesn't seem to back down from things. >> jimmy, we're hearing he's going to talk about education, specifically calling to extend the school day in new jersey and also apparently going to talk about lowering property taxes in the garden state. is he going to be able to still achieve this or is the speech going to be entirely overshadowed by the bridge scandal, by the other scandal that's starting to brew as well with regard to the tourism money? >> well, i think to be brutally honest, i think he can get things through his state legislature. it's simply a matter of how much more stuff will come out with regard to the scandal. you've got a federal investigation. you have multiple state legislative committees that are going to be investigating this. if more turns up and if more heads fall within his office, i.e. staff, that's going to debill tate his legislative agenda to a degree. but don't think for a second that chris christie is not going to reach out to democrats. he's got a posse of democrats in the state senate and house that he's been working with for four years. >> are they still on his side, jimmy? this bipartisan posse that you speak of, are they still backing him? >> well, i think they'll back him until they don't have to. the bottom line, they'll be reup for re-election as well. if it looks like -- the last thing the new jersey house and senate want to do is have a 9% approval rate. they want to produce legislation to get things done. new jersey voters will not tolerate having that stalemate trend, they won't allow it. >> alice, here's the thing, we're talking about it, folks writing about it. but in terms of its popularity in new jersey, according to a recent poll, it has not taken much of a hit. his approval rating hovers around 60%, that's despite the fact according to this asbury park press poll, 80% said they believe more members of christie's administration will be implicated. how do you reconcile those numbers? 80% of the folks saying we think there's going to be more dirt dished but we still like the guy? >> given the fact that how he won his re-election by a landslide in a state that typically wouldn't have that for a republican goes to show you he is a popular guy and able to work across the aisle. the fact he took quick and decisive action, apologizing and holding people accountable, and heads did roll, they believe if there is anyone else responsible they will be shown the door. he is holding people accountable. we're not seeing the same type of holding people accountable for problems we see in washington, d.c. but that's what the people of new jersey appreciate at least to this point -- >> alice, what did you mean by that last comment there? >> well, obviously, if you want to look at comparisons between what's happened here and this quote, scandal with what we had with benghazi -- >> why quote -- are you saying this is not a legitimate scandal? >> i'm saying that there's certainly cause for concern given that one person or a small handful of people certainly did call for these lane closures but no one died in the situation. we have benghazi and irs and nsa -- president obama is promoting people -- there hasn't been anyone held bltable in major scandal going on in washington, d.c. >> jimmy williams, 20 seconds, i'll end with you. >> staffers from chris christie's office deliberately and maliciously screwed up people's traffic, school kids and emergency vehicles and that was all willful. it was one display of bullying and power. what happened in benghazi was a tragedy but no one legitimately said no security at that consula consulate. you can't even say the irs thing because liberal groups were exposed were targeted. let's just get real about this, okay. >> you took more than 20 seconds. >> sorry. >> big thanks to all of you. >> thank you. >> folks, we'll have live coverage of governor christie's state of the state address in trenton, new jersey, 3:00 eastern right here on msnbc. >>> as the supreme court prepares to take up a highly charged case involving first amendment rights and abortion clinics, the new report out today shedding light on abortion rights in this country. we'll look at that. >>> also ahead. texting in a movie theater, sets off a deadly shooting in florida. that story next.

adam schiff, congressman, you're a leader on the privacy issue. i want to talk about this bill you're introducing in just a moment. first, let's talk about what the president is probably going to do on friday. what do you think he needs to do? what would you like to hear from president obama on friday? >> i'd like to hear specifics on some of the changes he wants to see take place, in particular, i would love to hear him advocate for restructuring of that bulk m meta data program, that we can use a month traditional approach of going to the telephone companies when we have reasons to believe a number is connected with a terrorist plot. similarly i think he'll layout steps to bolster confidence both at home and around the world that the eavesdropping we're doing is focused on the bad guys, the people that mean to do us harm. those involved in terrorist plots and there is no desire nor intent to gather the communications of innocent people. so i want to hear him layout the case of how we're going to build that confidence. very important for the cooperation we need around the world as well as important for our industries to maintain their position of leadership in a technology world. >> let's dive into your telephone metadata reform act as you have dubbed it. very sexy title there, by the way. >> yes. >> it specifically removes call records from the types of information that the government can obtain under section 215 of the patriot act. explain how this is going to, a, how it's going to change the system that we have now, and, b, prevent future controversies like the one exposed -- like the ones exposed by mr. snowden? >> the current practices for the government to apply the fisa court and get all of this domestic call records in bulk. mind you, it's not the content of the calls but the numbers connected to other numbers, what number has been calling other number, rather than do that we would go to more traditional model when we had return to believe that a particular number was connected with a plot, we would go to providers and say, give us the numbers that these number have been in touch with. i think tech logically i think we can reduce the response times. the biggest argument made by the intelligence community by gathering the bulk data is to do it more quickly. i think we can get the response times down very short. >> congressman, you know that phone companies have said they are against this. what makes you think you're going to be able to change their minds? >> this is certainly an image problem for the phone companies. they would rather not be involved at all. but the reality is they maintain these records anyway, they need to bill customers and need them for disputes. fcc requires them to keep records for a year and a half. they are already doing it. they could carry those records in a form that would make it more easily useable in a terrorism investigation, that's something we should ask them to do. but it's not something they are going to volunteer to do, but nonetheless i think they can be persuaded. >> before i let you go, i want to talk about the budget, house negotiators struck this trillion dollar deal to finance the government through september. among other things, it takes $25 million away from wall street regulators who are essentially supposed to be protecting the little guy from big banks. as a democrat how can you accept a concession like that one? >> it's hard. it's a bitter pill. on the other hand there are a lot of things i can accept and do like in the bill. the restoration of funding forehead start and early head start, for example, so democrats got a lot of their priorities and republicans that wanted to water down or render that new cf d.c. ineffective, they got part of what they wanted and that's the nature of any big compromise. but what we all got is the avoidance of another shutdown, the avoidance of autopilot financing where we don't get to prioritize changing needs for the country. so on some, i think it's a victory and congress with very few it can claim. >> congressman adam schiff, thank you. >> two panels will investigate the september lane closures on the george washington bridge. >> our concern is that there was apparently a very massive abusive power and attempt to conceal that abuse of power. >> loyal team player, not rogue operative. >> this is the way the administration does business, you're with them or you're not. >> so few republicans came to his defense. you talk about an acid test. >> there's something here that does not connect fully. >> for more on the chris christie bridge scandal joining me now from trenton, new jersey, michael isikoff. good day to you. let's start with these investigations, tell me about the two simultaneous investigations that the state legislature is conducting. and anymore subpoenas forthcoming? >> reporter: exactly, we've got the formation of a super committee by the general assembly that's going to be chaired by john wisniewski been heading the investigation so far. its scope has been broadened to include what -- to go right into the governor's office and what did the govern's people know and when did they know it. my understanding is when the new legislature is formally sworn in on thursday, there will be new subpoenas coming and that could -- we would have subpoenas and first two will be bridget kelly, the former deputy chief of staff who got fired who sent that e-mail that sort of started the whole thing, time for some traffic problems in ft. lee. and also, bill stepien, the campaign manager. so two top christie aides who will be subpoenaed on thursday. separately the state senate has its own investigation going and we know the u.s. attorney in newark, paul fishman is reviewing to see whether any federal laws have been broken. multiple investigations right now. >> what do the people at the center of this controversy, david wildstein who went to school with christie and served at the port authority until his resignation and pleaded the fifth on the same day of the marathon news conference. this is how governor christie described their relationship at the news conference. >> i have had no contact with david wildstein in a long time. a long time, well before the election. >> michael, you've probably seen this by now. the wall street journal today unearthed this picture from september 11th, the third day of the lane closures. it shows christie and center there wearing red tie, that is david wildstein. any explanation at this point? >> reporter: right, well i guess it all depends on the definition of well before the election, that was two months before the election. or less than two months actually. wildstein is the key player so far. he took the fifth amendment last week when he was called to testify. as far as anybody can tell, from the -- based on the testimony from the port authority, it was wildstein who directed these bridge closures. he was the one that ordered them, without even informing the executive director of the port authority. now, all we know is that prior to his ordering those bridge closures, he had that one e-mail exchange with bridget kelly in the governor's office. so his testimony is crucial to getting to the bottom of what happened here. right now he's taking the fifth. he has indicated that if he gets immunity, he will talk, that could be interpreted in various ways, including that he's got a story to tell that may not be totally supportive of what hash said so far by the governor's office. we just don't know until we hear it. >> and the story goes on. michael isikoff. another congressman is retiring from politics. let's hit the political playground, congressman bill owens, democrat from new york now announced that he is retiring and will not seek a fourth term. he says he wants to undertake new endeavors and spend more time with family. more than a dozen other members of congress have announced their retirement so far in the 113th congress. some house republicans may not be too happy with senator ted cruz today after he announced his new deputy chief of staff. cruz has hired paul teller, fired last month from the republican study committee, accused of leaking information to outside groups. a wyoming lawmaker is pushing to bring back the firing squad as a means for killing death row inmates. republican state senator bruce burns says if lethal injection is not available, a firing squad is practical because he says building a gas chamber would cost too much and he considers that a crueler method. >>> mitt romney looking like a guy with nothing to lose. there he is letting it all hang out. that was mitt romney gangham style at the conference for young mormons in arizona. you might recognize the moves from the viral video, maybe not. maybe you don't recognize those moves. im, he's agreed to give it up. that's today?

>> not so. all you needed to do was look at the thanksgiving menu of the first family and note there were nine different varieties of pies to let you know that she is not a food tyrant at all. it's about moderation. >> and also spent some time, i understand, if i remember correctly down in d.c., she spent time hanging out at the sugar shack. >> they totalled up the calories consumed in one visit and it was about 1700. every now and then. it's not bad. >> it's all about moderation. myth number three, her legacy is going to either be let's move or joining forces. we know she spends a great deal of time with the vice president's wife as well, with jill biden, working with veterans. those aren't going to be her legacies? >> my argument is that those are the most high profile of her initiatives but i think one of the things that people forget is that sort of philosophy that is woven throughout all of her events is really about youth mentoring and the idea of paying it forward. so that i think could in fact be her most lasting legacy, the idea that youth can be brought into the white house in a way that is sort of a learning experience for them. >> michelle obama hates area alma mater, princeton. >> as an alum of princeton, i i have to say i think this got the most reaction from readers. it came about her senior these sis was unearthed during the first campaign. and in it she expressed a certain amount of a.m. bif lens about her experience there as a black student. in contrast to that, she has -- did, for instance, as a freshman encourage other black high school students to attend the university. and she has been very warm to alumni and to faculty. and i think she's also embraced the informal motto of university, which is princeton in the nation service. >>> my favorite myth, that michelle obama represents an unusual success story. >> yeah, the success story that i'm referring to is this idea of the wife, the mother and the successful professional and doing it all while being black. i think what people have often missed is that those women like michelle obama have existed for some time. they are just not part of popular culture. we didn't really see them on television. we didn't really see them in movies. that's changing but the reality is that she was part of a group that had for a very long time been in the shadows. >> at the start of the article you wrote the first lady quote to some she was emblem attic of fully realized african-american womanhood and incomparable fashion icon, to others the voice of racial grievance and seventh avenue vanity. she has proven herself to be neither vengeful nor the patron saint of activist feminism. what else has she proven about herself really quickly, robin? >> i think she's proven that she could bring, i think a very contemporary vision of what it means to be a woman today and that mix of being educated and thoughtful and fashionable, but also being a home body, like keeping -- what do you call it, home fires burning. these very three dimensional which in part may be why people of mystified because there's not this narrow notion of her. >> robin givehan from the weapon "washington post," thanks. >> that's going to do it for me on this tuesday afternoon. i'm craig melvin. up next "andrea mitchell reports. is this the bacon and cheese diet?

i'm del walters in new york. check us out 24 hours aday just by going to aljazeera.com. >> the plain language of the constitution seems pretty clear. it's the wrestling match between the president and a divided senate is a little muddy. the supreme court is the referee on this "inside story." >> hello, i'm ray suarez. you can find it right there in the institution, which is the handbook for running the country, article 2, section 2, the president shall have power to fill vacancy that is accept during the breaking of the senate. what did those framers mean? at a time of horsepower transportation that the president could fill a job without waiting for everyone to get back to washington, or the president could not be held hostage by the senate's advise and consent role. it's an interesting clash of executive power, legislative mechanics, and the ups and downs between the president and the congress. the supreme court has been asked to make a precedence-setting decision. in 2012 president obama named three people to the national labor relations board or nlrb while the senate was not working but instead was in per form ma session. the three seats had been vacant for a long time because the senate had not approved the nominations while in session. >> this was a clear attempt not to put into place officials that the senate couldn't confirm but in place officials that the senate wouldn't confirm. >> reporter: with the super majority in place senate republicans had blocked the previous nominees leaving the labor board unable to do business. but after the president filled the positions the nlrb acted on a court ruling from washington state that the noel canning company had violated a contract with its employees. they took the case to the dc court of appeals stating that the nomin nominees were unconstitution an therefore the board had no room to react. the senate either agree with the administration that the president can make appointment at any break, or the senate could continue to block appointments , and literally presidential appointments should only fill vacancies at that time. >> what the president has done here when the senate is convening sessions every three days. these appointments were particularly unprecedented. >> historically presidents were both parties have made recess appointments. sometimes to install officials who would otherwise have a difficult time in the senate confirmation process. the supreme court case of the national labor relations board has given a lengthy 90- minute oral argument. the court will hear from lawyers respecting from both sides and 45 senators concerned about overreach. >>> how did the framers of the constitution except the recession provision to work when they wrote it? what does it mean for the senate to be present in the capitol and in session. for that and more we're joined by john, who covers the high court for cq roll call, bruce, author of "constitutional peril." and jacin ta singh. john, let me start with you. it sounds like the man who organizes cases had a rough day in the saddle. >> i would agree with that. they appeared today and tried to convince the court and convinc e president did was not a big deal. he was requested from justices on the left and the right who want to it question that assertion. one particular moment that stood out to me was elena kagan, who was once holding that same job was up to the session to decide when they are in session or not in session. that is not a good sign for the obama administration. >> going back to the first days of the republic a common happenstance in washington. >> this is something that the general so solicitor tried. from making these appointments. so the senate is on the record of saying it is in session even if it is every three days and if it is not conducting business, that seems to me to persuade a majority of the justice that is the obama administration appointments in this case were not constitutional. >> jacinta singh, do you think when the framers wrote "in session," that they were in chambers, not conducting business but gaveling in and gaveling out. >> i don't think that's necessarily what they meant. but what is interesting about this case because there is not a lot of judicial precedent on the question that winds up being the question that we ask. there is no question that the senate operates fundamentally differently from then where they now have a hundred members and then they had 26. they could travel much faster, there are reasons the way practice has evolved the way they have. but we ask and quoting dictionaries and what the process is like whatter and what these words meant in the 1700's and that was borne out in the briefs that were submitted. but if you read the text for the first time it's a more restrictive view than what practice has been for the past 100 years. >> it is remarkable that they've never been asked to rule on this in 225 years. >> i think that's testimony of the fact that politics ordinarily sorts itself out here. that congress and the president have ways to work around issues of recess appointments. you can make acting appointments, special assistance one way or another. and i think it's also true the issue is exaggerated in terms of its importance. we have a leviathon government. i want to go back to the baseline understanding of the ordinarily. it was understood that the >> so it could bear on, we witnessed that with the nomination of john brennan to be director of the c.i.a. it brought out worrisome issues whether the president power to use predator drones if thought to be a threat to the national security. and holding up critical documents after years o , we'll justify this presidential power. the baseline the recess appointment power ought to be interpreted proudly because it goes against the baseline. it should be narrowly construed because the negatives that checks and balances bring. >> how the senate uses it's power to call candidates onto the carpet, and uses it's leverage , and examples of leverage quite apart whether or not mr. cordrai should get his job. >> this case is very political at its fundamental base. this as justice kagan pointed out, she said the recess appointments clause has shifted from being about whether the senate is there and available to confirm the president's nominees to it being--it's being used to avoid the senate and go around the senate. president obama did that in this case. he knew he would get approval in this nominee and all sides this is a political case. >> has the confirmation process come to mean something, act in a way that we can't imagine the framers really intended? >> yes, i think that's a good point. the way that this confirmation process works today, and you've heard the benefits of advice and consent. the administration overwhelmingly use it is. most of the people, the obama operations and every other operation, they have gone through the confirmation process and they have good reasons to use it in many cases. the nlrb was a particular target for obstructionalism because the entire agency was overly sympathetic. they were not giving business as fair hearing and conservatives in the senate took it upon themselves to block nominees consistently. this is an example of its true. appointments used to avoid the senate but that was a response to a very obstructionist approach on behalf of the senate. >> that's a self-inflicted wound. remember the president's political party controls the senate, and then they changed the rules in regard to these nominations you can't use a filibuster to block a vote whatsoever. that's politics at work. and you talk about obstructionism. that's what checks and balances are about. now it may cause people frustration that all the moving parts ought to work together, but that's the theory of our constitution. >> in the federalists , alexander hamilton wrote approval process provided in excellent check upon the spirit of favoritism of the president. when i come back i want to talk about what this really means about presidential power, to have a case like this, and also to have the president's nominations held up in the way they have been. time for us to take a short beak. this is inside story. >> journalist glenn greenwald joins "the stream" >> the us government uses terrorism as it's excuse to do almost everything... they're collecting emails and telephone calls every single day >> glenn greenwald on "the stream" on al jazeera america al jazeera america gives you the total news experience anytime, anywhere. more on every screen. digital, mobile, social. visit aljazeera.com. follow @ajam on twitter. and like aljazeera america on facebook for more stories, more access, more conversations. so you don't just stay on top of the news, go deeper and get more perspectives on every issue. al jazeera america. >> every sunday night aljazeera america presents gripping films from the worlds top documetary directors. >> everybody's different here... >> for students at the esteemed international high school at lafayette everyday is a fight to suceeed >> it was my dream to get a high school diploma >> but a failing grade can mean loosing it all... >> i don't know how my life would look, if i would get deported... >> will they make it in america? >> i have a chance... >> i learn america >>> welcome back to "inside story." i'm ray suarez. on this edition of the program, we're talking about the separation of powers and specifically, the president's ability to make appointments when the senate is in recess. the case argued today before the supreme court involved appointments the president made to the national labor relations board when the senate was in pro forma session. some of these nominees were of long-standing, but unable to either get a hearing or unable to pass the relevant committee. the question is, have the advise and consent power been used to make the nlrb non-functioning as an agency of government did you think? >> i think that that was the plan? the nlrb, the supreme court previously held unless the agency has a quorum, they were not able to function, and they dipped below that, so they were not able to decide matters before them, and knot it with standing that the senate was refusing to take a case forward, so this was very much by design, intended to slow or halt the functioning of the agency. >> and i think it was defeated because ultimately the president did nominate, and the senate did confirm the roster, and if the supreme court says these particular rulings with two only members are invalid, though new board is already in place, and can just ratify what has already been done, so i think it shows the futility of trying to obstruct this process. >> so john, i guess the important question to ask is whether the senate's majority's decision about changing the rules for confirmation that happened late last year made this case in effect a more abstract argument about the power of the executive rather than one that has every day applicability? >> i think it did, yeah. and before the senate rules changed in november and even before these nlrb members were confirmed, this case would have had a lot more significance, but now we have a full roster and as he mentioned they can ratify this earlier nlrb's decision even if the obama administration loses in this case, but the senate rules change in november, and there essentially is no filibuster anymore, and the president can get his nominees confirmed on a simple up or down vote, and this case is not as significant at least for president obama anymore. >> we're going to have a good rigorous debate about what the senate can and can't do, and what the president should and should don't. the president shall have power to fill up all vacancies that may happen during the recess of the senate. if you want to take a really fine tooth comb to that phrase, it sounds like it's only vacancies that occur while the senate is not in session that the president can fill this way. >> correct. that's what the court of appeals below concluded. and the idea is that the president could have nominated somebody to that position because it didn't -- because it was already available before the recess. that wasn't a vacancy that didn't occur during the recess. and if you have a situation have a vacancy occurred not in the recess, the president can't get it ratified, then the vacancy continues in the recess, that's contrary to the constitution. >> the challengers argue that happen means to occur to begin, so the positionment becomes vacant during a recess. the administration argued that happening with also be a state of being, and not just a state of becoming, so if the actual vacancy began before the recess and continued into the recess, then that would provide the justification. and if you think about it, does it really make sense to say on the day before the senate went into recess, a position became vacant? on the day after they went into recess it became vacant and now you can. so one could ultimately come out and i think the court will come out and say yeah, that is what we're saying, and that's totally reasonable, but it's also not crazy to think the opposite. >> but go back again to the baseline, i think everyone agrees the preferable way is a nomination that the senate has hearings on and there's an up ardown vote. and the recess is the exception, and the president ought to act in an ambiguous manner, and give the american people an opportunity to learn that candidate. >> briefly, john did they spend a lot of time on the language of the constitution? >> they did. it felt like a dictionary class at time over what the word recess means and happen means. on the happen question i think they are less inclined to go as far as the dc circuit did. so they seemed a little bit less open to that approach. but i also think that even if they were to take that approach, the obama administration, and future presidents could find a way around it, so even if you are only talking about filling vacancies that happen during this very brief period between sessions, you can talk to appointees and say if you are thinking about stepping down, why don't you do it during this time period. >> i take a brood view of the word, and this show is a happening. [ laughter ] >> we're going to take a break, and when we come back we'll talk more about the separation of powers, what the intent of the people who wrote the constitution was, and what we're supposed to do with it now in 2014. innovation changes our lives. opening doors ... opening possibilities. taking the impossible from lab ... to life. on techknow, our scientists bring you a sneak-peak of the future, and take you behind the scenes at our evolving world. techknow - ideas, invention, life. on al jazeera america town. the boat was overloaded are refugees, many women and children. heavy fighting has been reported today in the city as rebel forces attempt to seize the town. control of the town has changed hands twice since that conflict began last month. >> sectarian violence in the central african republic has claimed 1200 lives, displacing thousands of relatives and people there. entire villages have fled, hiding in the bush from christian and muslim militias. some villagers who left are now starting to return. >> people have fled, houses burnt down. these village have suffered attack after attack. in this settlement, near the town, hundreds of people emerge from the bush for the visit of a u.n. official. >> we are back now to rebuild your lives. >> they were hanging on his every word. >> every sunday night join us for exclusive... i say clearly it's productivity. we need to produce more, better. so we -- we are talking about real reporting that brings you the world. giving you a real global perspective like no other can. real reporting from around the world. this is what we do. al jazeera america. >> welcome back to inside story. i'm ray suarez. we're talking about the supreme court recovering the power struggle between the obama administration and the senate over presidential nominees. still with us, john, who covers the high court procedural roll call, and to bruce and jacnta singh. looking back over the 225 years since the writing of the constitution, if you concede the government is a breathing creature of the constitution, does practice create precedence, even if there hasn't been judicial decisions in this kind of thing, does the fact that we've. going on and doing this over time create the kind of precedence? >> the answer is both yes and no. if we take the most comparable battle of constitutional power, it enables congress to block executive action. it's existed some 60 years back to hoover, and invalidated hundreds of laws and encroaches on executive authority. on the other hand if you look at practice under taken from executive privilege we don't want to share information to congress. this happened in the nixon case, and the supreme court for the first time in 1974 addressed this question of executive privilege and really it doesn't protect you from a subpoena addressed to you from court. and it relied exclusively on george washington. it has adopted long-standing practice on the gloss of the actual words. >> i ask because presidents from both parties have been doing this for a long time. appointing people while senate is in session. >> you can find these appointments going back to george washington. that's how far back we're talking, and consistently both parties for a very long time. now as i mentioned before, both parties overwhelmingly resort to advice and consent most of the time. these recess appointments have been exceptional but they've also always been used. with regard to a bigger question of whether practicecrac practice creates precedence, the supreme court will decide when it decides yes and when it decides no on these sorts of questions. but the almost near anonymity that it's know. if the text is with you but historical practice is against you, well practice wins and the court took a gasp to that. i think in this case the answer is going to be no. >> so john, what happens? if as it sounds like the supreme court rules against the obama administration, what will change about the way government has been working up until now? >> i think you're going to see a completely new meaning of recess appointments clause. it's going to be narrowed substantially to the point that it's effectively not useable any more. where only in these narrow circumstances. really what matters more is how the senate will proceed and how the house will proceed. the consequences of elections will be bigger and the rules of the senate will be bigger. the one really discussion is whether whatever party is in power of the senate next january, whether they will continue to abide by the current rules by the filibuster or it will revert back. i don't think any party will go back. >> if it narrows after the supreme court rules will the senate have to go through this pantomime of bringing it to order? >> probably so. one chamber can adjourn only by the permission of the other chamber. you may get used to sittin seeing on cpan one center sitting there at all hours day and night for the per form ma. >> now we have year round congress. there won't be a time when the president can't get a nominee voted on. >> thanks a lot. that brings us to the end of this edition of inside stor "in" thanks for being with us. in washington, i'm ray suarez. >>> welcome to al jazeera america. i'm del walters. these are the stories we are following for you. in the wake of a scandal, new jersey governor chris christie preparing to make his state of the state address. >>> reviewing the nsa, a senate committee set to review the recommendations by the presidential panel. >>> and egyptian voters go to the polls deciding on a new constitution. >>> updating our breaking news coming out of roswell, new mexico police confirming there has been a shooting at a middle school there.

"happening now" starts right now. we'll see you later and tomorrow morning. bye, everybody. jenna: breaking news on today's top headlines and brand new stories you will see here first. jon: convicted killer jody arias back in court awaiting a whole new trial. this will determine whether she lives the rest of her life in prison or her execution is coming on by the state. >>> plus, what investigators say sparked this massive five-alarm fire. >>> new information keeping teens healthy. are reality shows a helpful tool? it is all "happening now." jon: and to our top story. a new bombshell report says that president obama knew that day that the deadly benghazi attack was an act of terrorism. good morning to you, i'm jon scott. jenna: hope you're off to great day, everybody, i'm jenna lee. newly declassified testimony by top pentagon officials at congressional hearings suggest that his cabinet did nothing to change the narrative after a story surfaced that the events were triggered by a film mocking islam. the papers also raise questions about the military and whether or not there were orders properly preparing those who would respond to such an attack. these revelations raise even more questions over the white house's response. >> begs the question, where did this information about it being a response to a demonstration really come from since the first information that was coming through was it, it was indeed a terrorist attack. it is a little unclear exactly what was said in terms of what was introduced but after the fact it looks to me like the understanding for secretary panetta and general dempsey was it was a terrorist attack. so you could have been presumed that would have been conveyed to the president. jenna: national security correspondent jennifer griffin is live at the pentagon with the latest for us now. jennifer? >> reporter: hi, jenna. some of these 450 pages of transcripts recently declassified were still redacted but what i think is most interesting, these are transcripts of interviews of commanders down by the house services subcommittee, the africom commander at the time, general carter ham, we have not heard from him publicly but he testified to the house armed services committee and essentially debunks the speculation that has followed him since 9/11 that he was somehow told, removed from command and that he wanted to do more and send more military royally that night and white house and his superiors didn't let him. chairman of the armed services committee buck mckeen does the questioning of carter ham. he requests quote, this might be a good time to ask. i heard you made the statement that you were prepared to go to their aid and somebody told you know and you said we are going anyway. is that all some supposition that comes from some reporter? ham replies, yes, sir, no one ever told me no. >> they did what they could with what they had. the bottom line here is that they didn't have what they needed to respond. >> reporter: ham and the other commanders present a picture after woefully ill postured military force whose assets were not in position to launch a timely response or rescue. no u.s. marines in libya were there on the night of the attack despite offers from defense secretary lee on panetta after a december 2011 visit to libya in terms of positioning of assets. the f1 6 fighter jets based in aviano, italy, were unarmed and separated from aerial refuelers which were 10 hours a way in great britain. no mention made in the transcript of ac-130 gunships being available that night. perhaps most vexing was the decision to make the f.a.s.t. team of marines sent as a quick reaction force from spain, to deplane and change out of uniforms, delaying their response time more than an hour. that request came from the state department. ham pushed back against repeated suggestions by committee members and some military analyst that is sending an f-16 to fly over benghazi the night of the attack would have made any difference. quote, the telephone against i had at the time caused me to conclude in my military judgment that attack aircraft would not be the appropriate response tool so i did not direct a heightened alert. remember, jenna, those who said in afghanistan and elsewhere, sending f-16s to do a flyover, a fly-by, to fire up their engines is a good way to disperse crowds and has been used repeatedly in afghanistan. ham rebuts that as do other commanders who testify in these hearings that have been held over the last 15 months on capitol hill in closed sessions. >> a lot there in those newly-declassified papers, general. thank you very much. we'll follow the story even more closely. james rosen has details what the documents reveal and what the white house knew next hour. jon: only one day left until government funding officially ends. congress could pass, get this, a bipartisan spending bill that could keep washington up and running until october. it restores funding for the military as well as paying for highway projects t provides money for the president's plan to expand early childhood education. with me, ellison barber, a writer with the "washington free beacon." seems like people on both sides of the aisle are squawking about all this which means probably it's a pretty decent budget. >> right, depending which side you're at you can look through and find something you like and something you don't like. one thing you will see bipartisan consensus they're happy with, it corrects an issue both parties have problems with the cost of living adjustments cuts made under the murray and ryan budget. they changed that to provide an exemption for veterans with disability pensions. that is something you will see republicans and democrats rally around. think a big issue with that under the murray-ryan budget plan. jon: no government shutdown in the future so it appears. >> it appears. this is 1500 pages. they're going through all of it right now. but if you listen to the republican weekly address this morning and they had their hyped closed-door meeting speaker boehner said they had this thing and looking through it and hadn't made a decision what they're going to do with it. they were engorged to have it and have something passed and seems like it will line up to where they get this passed. jon: the republicans are trying to defund, derail, decommission obamacare. there are some cuts to obamacare in this. >> there are. specifically one billion cut to a program as part of the affordable care act called prevention in public health initiative. basically what that does provides different money to public prevention initiatives. one is tobacco. tobacco prevention initiative. that is area republicans had a problem with that because it was ambiguously written where the money could be used potentially a lot of different things. they were a little weary about that. a billion dollars cut from the program. that is something republicans will be happy but on democrat side there weren't any real significant cuts to the funding of affordable care act. jon: 1.1 interest dollars budget but -- $1.1 trillion budget but tens of billions of dollars what president obama wanted to spend on various programs. >> right this is people squawking on a both sides. $25 billion more in spending cuts than the senate wanted but $25 billion more spending money than the house wanted. it come down to where it is bit of in between. jon: the art of compromise is maybe alive in washington after all? >> looks like a little bit. jon: i was surprised to read it is $164 billion lower than president george w. bush's last discretionary budget. >> they say, when adjusted with, for inflation that it ends up being a little bit less but still a significant, still a significant bill. $1.1 trillion which is a lot of money. but something that had to be passed. from republican standpoint they're seeing this we need to get this passed because we want to focus on jobs report we didn't think was good and problems with the affordable care act. they want that to be focus moving towards the election. jon: for those in the private sector ho haven't seen any kind after raise in years and years, they will be happy to know that federal employees get a 1% pay raise. >> that will thrill a lot of people. jon: ellison barber from the "washington free beacon." thank you. >> thank you. jon: jenna. jenna: turn aig way from washington a minute. information on two significant scandals surrounding new jersey governor chris christie as he is about to deliver his state of the state address. eric shawn from trenton, new jersey, with more now. eric? >> reporter: controversy involves the tv commercials and whether or not the christie administration misused superstorm sandy funds to make the commercials. the company that manufactured the commercials and governor's office deny any wrongdoing. they're is the bridge scandal. that scandal likely to overshadow the governor's state of the state speech he will make later on today here at trenton courthouse. the governor will face overwhelmingly democratic state legislature that is now established in the assembly and the state senate, two separate committees, special investigative committees to investigate the bridge scandal. some assemblymen and women calling for the criminal charges to be lodged against david wildstein. wildstein, the former port authority official who took the fifth 20 times last week and cited with contempt when called before the transportation committee when called to testify about the bridge scandal. there are subpoenas expected day after tomorrow, one for bridget anne kelly, fired former deputy chief of staff of the governor who whose email about traffic in fort lee sparked this whole scandal. another subpoena expected for his former close aid, campaign manager bill stepien, forced to withdraw as consideration for gop chairman of the state. democrats doubt the governor's claims that he didn't know. >> our concern is that there was apparently a very massive abuse of power and an attempt to conceal that abuse of power. before we learned of this, we would have all believed that something like this could not happen and so we know we need to change laws to make sure it doesn't happen. >> reporter: assemblymen wisniewski says it is premature to consider whether or not there will be subpoena for governor christie himself. jenna: interesting news if it does. eric, thank you. more as we get it. jon: we're learning more about a shooting inside of a florida movie theater a 43-year-old man was shot and killed. police say his death could have been caused by a fight over text-messaging. >>> they call them the invinceables, young adults, who are supposed to help fund obamacare. jenna: i'll take it jon. new numbers raising doubts about the health care kay rogers is here to help us figure out the figures. we'll get jon some tea. it is that time of year. hire. ♪ ho ho ho [ female announcer ] at 100 calories, not all food choices add up. some are giant. some not so giant. when managing your weight, bigger is always better. ♪ ho ho ho ♪ green giant jon: fox news alert. new mexico state police are reporting a shooting at barindo middle school in roswell, new mexico. we're told the suspect is in custody. three people are injured. no reports of fatalities here. it is early in the investigation. roswell, new mexico middle school. parents are asked not to go to the school because the school is on lockdown. when we get more information we'll bring it to you on "happening now." >>> a look at some crime stories we're watching. new developments in the jody arias case. she was found guilty of murdering her lover. now a judge set a new trial date in march for the penalty phase of her case. jurors could not originally agree whether arias should receive the death penalty. >>> a retired cop is accused of shooting a man dead inside of a movie theater. the suspect told the victim to stop text-messaging during the movie. when he refused the dispute escalated. the suspect faces a second-degree murder charge. >>> the billionaire who created beanie-babies facing up to five years in prison. ty warner will soon learn the his sentence for evading taxes on $25 million of income. the 69-year-old man has apologized. his defense attorneys argued for probation. jenna: back to health care, we're learning the first time the demographics of folks signing up for obamacare. less than a quarter of people enrolled are between the ages of 18 and 34, well below the goal of the program. new young adults signing up for obamacare will offset costs for older enrollees. this will make the future cost of obamacare unclear but the administration says the numbers show they're in a solid place. kay rogers from foxnews.com is looking at numbers. we touched a little bit why the demographic are important but why do they really matter in the long run for obamacare. >> the biggest take away from the demographics that young people are knot enrolling at a rate the administration would have hope ad demographics are key to make it work. young people are needed to offset the cost of older, and less healthy people. 54% of the enrollees were female, 46% male, 30% aged 34 and under and 34% under age of 18 to 34. i spoke to an analyst yesterday to analyzed census data from 2011 and 201012 and young people were 3% of the uninsured population in this country. what we see here it is not enough. jenna: what happens if young people don't sign up? >> if young people don't sign up this is very doom and gloom according to insurance industry experts. this is adverse risk death spiral. the law wind up costing more. you can't charge older less healthy people more than younger healthy people for coverage so it's a losing proposition for the insurance industry. jenna: one of the difficulties covering these stories the last couple weeks we don't always know the goal. how far off does it seem the government is from their target numbers. >> the target numbers for year one of aca to have 7 million people enrolled and 2.7 million young and healthy people needed to keep the costs down. from what we're seeing they're not on target. they want 3.3 million people enrolled at end of december. we're only 2.2 million. jenna: they have a couple months left. >> they do. they have three months left until the open enrollment period ends, and one good sign there was a surge of enrollees toward the end of december. hopefully more people start signing upped and younger people sign up. jenna: we'll see about the procrastinators and if the deadline, deadline is really the one for obama care. kate, thank you very much. jon: deadly clashes in egypt one the first day of voting on a new constitution there. are fair elections possible in that nation?

do we want egypt to become libya. i think we do not. we need to give them aid to keep them on track. jenna: do you believe with the money saudis are funneling in which are billions and billions and billions of dollars do you think our 1 1/2 billion dollars buys us that, what you're describing that. >> it doesn't buy us that, no, you're right, it is chicken feed compared to the billions others are pouring in there but the important point here is that the united states needs a stable egypt. the united states needs a stable saudi arabia. the united states need as stable gulf. these countries, these regimes are all under enormous pressure. we may not like or agree 100% how they're responding to it but we need to be on their side. because they will get through it and we need to prevent them from falling the way other failed states in the region have. jenna: doug, the ambassadorially touches on a key point when it cops to the debate about foreign policy, whatever country we're looking at particularly when it comes to egypt. is our priority in egypt a democratic egypt or is our priority a pro-american egypt we can work with, democratic or not. >> very hard to choose between those. if money bought stability, why did mubarak fall? in money bought stability why did any of these regimes go under? the challenge is money does not buy stability. thundershower tearianism breeds its own problems. there are moral consequences to giving money to regimes that shoot people down. they're arresting liberals. they supported the coup and found themselves thrown under the bus. my point we need to step back. there is no good choice. why be forced to choose between two very, very bad outcomes. egypt face as bad future. whatever happens our money will not improve this. jenna: what is the risk on waiting, ambassador. >> first of all i don't think morality should be the basis of foreign policy it is a rough world out there. there are bad guys out to do us harm. al qaeda, iran, hezbollah, the muslim brothers. these are not benevolent actors. and egypt, strong countries like egypt, strong countries like saudi arabia in the gulf are standing up against these guys. we need to support them. does money buy stability? no. but it sure is a hedge against chaos. jenna: doug, that is also another point is. if we have to be in the game somehow because if we're not, then we're totally out of it all together. so what about that argument, that the money and some have made this argument, that the money despite the human rights violations and everything else, gives us a little bit of an in we might need somewhere down the line? >> look american interests are complicated. you have to be realistic about this. on the other hand you also have to recognize where you're paying for bullets that are killing people. if money will help buy stability, the saudis are doing it. the notion if we toss in extra we get much out of is an illusion and image it sends to people across the middle east is, we don't care. we are quite happy to subsidize regimes that openly shoot their own people. that's a problem for us and it is in conflict with the message we want to promote, democracy and human rights. we need to be more realistic there in terms of how we balance. one way of doing so is stepping away from very bad situations where we have very little influence. jenna: obviously our money is not just at work in egypt. it is at work all over the region. i would love to have you both back to expand the debate a little bit where we're putting our money and what it is actually getting us in some other countries as ambassador, doug, thank you very much. >> sure thing. jon: president obama says income inequality threatens the american dream but is an income gap actually good for a growing economy?

>> reporter: it just all depends on what kind of economists you talk to, jenna. you know, the idea of spreading the wealth has been central to the obama administration ever since joe the plumber's question back in 2007. but in recent months the president has called it the fundamental challenge of our time. he says a child born in the top 20% has about a two in three chance of staying at or near the top, whereas a child born into the bottom 20% has a less than one in twenty shot at making it to the top. >> if you have a small group of people who get a disproportionate share of the income, that creates disincentives for a small class of people to not focus on making productivity-enhancing investments, but trying to get a bigger piece of the pie because they can buy it. we call it rent seeking. that's not good for our economy in the long run. >> reporter: but some critics say there is another side to income inequality, that's income opportunity. for instance, as the economic be inequality between rich and poor has grown, women's economic status has increased. >> inequality in terms of the gap between low and high-wage people was creating opportunities for everyone, but women were especially able to leverage them. and that's why you got so many women breaking the glass ceilings in recent years. >> reporter: it's also suggested that super high net worth of the wealthiest does not necessarily reflect unfairness, but rather the shift from domestic markets to world markets and the opportunity in that. the shift to third world industrialization has made everyday items more affordable for everybody from clothes to cars to computers. but it comes at a cost, the loss of manufacturing and the industrial base here at home. and there is no easy way to remedy that, jenna. jenna: well, and some argue, doug, that the issue is less about the economy and more be really about family. how so? >> reporter: you know, there have been so many studies on that through the years, beginning back in the early 1960s with daniel moynihan's study, but a more recent 2012 heritage study found, and i'm quoting, the u.s. is steadily separating into a two caste system. in the high income third of the population, children are raised by married or parents with a college education. in the bottom income thursday, children are raised by single parents with a high school diploma or less. and there's no easy way to undo that, not for many, many years at least, jenna. jenna: a lot to think about, doug. thank you very much. >> reporter: you bet. jon: a little british girl disappears while on a family vacation in portugal nearly seven years ago. now police are hoping to finally solve the mystery of what happened to little madeleine mccann. she would be 10 years old now. british authorities are heading to portugal to arrest three men. officers say the suspects were involved in a series of burglaries in the coastal town where mccann was last seen. joining me now, mary ellen o'toole who worked as a profiler for the fbi when this kidnapping occurred. she is the author of "dangerous stints." i know the fbi was approached at the time about the madeleine mccann case. what can you tell us about what the thinking was? >> well, initially, when the case came to the bau or the behavioral analysis unit, it was very early on, and it was at that time which is typical in these kinds of cases the family needed to be ruled out. that's not unusual, that's standard operating procedure. but then as time went on, the case really became pretty dormant, and now this recent lead regarding the burglars is really pretty interesting because burglars who steal money and jewelry for a living are not what you expect when it comes to kidnapping children. it's like apples and oranges. jon: yeah. one wouldn't think that somebody who's just going to bust into a hotel room and grab a wristwatch off the night stand or something is also going to want to grab a 3-year-old girl. >> well, it's a liability. it's easy to walk out of a resort and secrete a cell phone or an ipad, but if you're holding the hand of a 3-year-old girl, you're certainly going to come to the attention of other people. and that's the first of the problem. then after that it's what do you do with this child? if you're a burglar and you have a pawnshop, you typically take your stolen items to, you've got that down to a science. but if you are now all of a sudden morphing into a child abductor, you have to have a way to decide what am i i going to do with this child, how do i take careful of her, what are my family members going to say? so the problems that you create with that theory of morphing from one into the other, um, is really problematic. jon: but just so vies know and, again, a lot of people have been following this case for seven years. this is not a whim, this is not a hunch or a slouch investigation. this is scotland yard saying that they have noted spikes in cell phone activity among three known burglars who were in the area of the resort when madeleine disappeared. and on top of that, robberies had increased in the resort area by a factor of four between february and may of '07. seven teen days before she disappeared there was one burglary and one attempted burglary at the resort. so they have written a letter to the port guise authorities -- portuguese authorities, and they are asking to speak to them. what after seven years can you expect the gleam from suspects in a case like this? >> well, here's two things that are really quite important. the spike in the cell phone communication, they don't have the content of those phone calls. it certainly could indicate a concern on the part of the burglars that somebody saw them coming in and out of rooms that they had not rented. but they were in and about that resort area at the time madeleine went missing. at the very least, these are people who would, in this country perhaps, be called persons of interest, and they could provide those scotland yard detectives with information about the dynamics of the resort that night, who they saw coming and going, what they heard, what they saw. so while they're providing that kind of information, scotland yard will also be taking a look at their backgrounds to see if there's anything in these, any of these three backgrounds that would suggest that one or two of these offenders could also be involved in either child pornography or could be a pedophile or have other kinds of behaviors indicative of someone that would kidnap a child. jon: you worked on the elizabeth smart case, the teenager who was miraculously found alive after she was kidnapped in this country. what do you say about the prospects that little madeleine mccann is still alive seven years later? >> absolutely the parents will never give up hope, nor should they. and i think in a case like this because the child is very young, we all will hold out hope that they may have felt she's not a threat, they may have felt that she would not remember what happened to her. so if she was not killed right away, then the idea that she could be out there living with somebody else or kept with somebody else is not impossible. and as you say, we have other cases where the child has been returned after years. so it makes sense that we should hold out hope here, continue with the investigation but always hold out hope. jon: just astounding to me that they are making progress apparently in this case after all this time. mary ellen o'toole from the fbi, thank you. >> you're welcome. ♪ ♪ jenna: well, this just in. now, the president in his first formal cabinet meeting of the year says he won't wait on congress to act. take a listen to some of what he had to say. >> i've got a pen, and i've got a phone. and i can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward in helping to make sure our kids are getting the best education possible, making sure that our businesses are getting the kind of support and help they need to grow and advance, to make sure that people are getting the skills that they need to get those jobs that our businesses are creating. and i've got a phone that allows me to convene americans from every walk of life; nonprofits, businesses, the private sector, universities. to try to bring more and more americans together around what i think is a unifying theme, making sure that this is a country where if you work harold, you can make it. -- hard, you can make it. jenna: the president also says he's getting close to finishing a review of u.s. surveillance practices to be unveiled on friday. the president also listed goals for 2014 including immigration reform and getting the economy growing faster. this is the last formal cabinet meeting before the state of the union two weeks from today. jon: police face one of the toughest decisions in law enforcement, whether to shoot a man holding a woman hostage. what led to this shootout, that's next. >>> plus, a five-alarm fire rips through an old paper mill, and this isn't the first time. what may have helped the flames to final level this old building. ♪ ♪ we use this board to compare car insurance rates side by , so you get the same coverage, often for less.

>> reporter: jon and jenna, good afternoon. of all the statements about the benghazi attacks that were made at the time by senior obama administration officials and which later turned out to be false, none was as far reaching as this one: >> based on the information that our initial information, and that includes all information, we saw no evidence to back up claims by others that this was a preplanned or premeditated attack, that it was -- we saw evidence that it was sparked by the reaction to this video. >> reporter: yet the declassified testimony before the house armed services subcommittee on oversight and investigation obtained exclusively by fox news shows that within 20 minutes of start of the assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, general martin dempsey, and then defense secretary leon ma net that -- pa panetta both w it was a terrorist attack. that was the word they got from general carter hamm, the combatant command over libya. first term congressman brad win stop, a republican of ohio and iraq war veteran, asked general hamm last june, quote: as a military person, i am concerned that someone in the military would be advising this was a demonstration. i would hope that our military leadership would be advising this was a terrorist attack. general hamm replied: again, sir, there was some preliminary discussion about maybe this was a demonstration, but i think at the command and i personally and i think the command very quickly got to the point that this was not a demonstration, this was a terrorist attack. winstrop, and you would have advised as such, correct? >> yes, sir. panetta told the senate armed services committee last year he introduced the subject of benghazi, and panetta was, quote, unequivocal that benghazi was a terrorist attack. so these triplets, as illuminating as they are, still leave unresolved how and when did the false narrative about a protest that never occurred originate, and why did leon panetta say nothing publicly for up to two weeks to correct it? we reached out to panetta yesterday and got no comment, the subcommittee still wants him back to testify again. jon and jenna? jon: james rosen reporting from washington, thank you. jenna: now to our other big story, some brand new information from the white house showing obamacare enrollment off the mark by a wide margin, raising serious concerns among insurance companies. the department of health and human services says 18-34-year-olds account for just 24% of totallen rollment. the white house hoped that number would be closer to 40% because those so-called invincibles are needed to sustain the law financially. just over two million people have currently signed up for coverage, but the obama administration is aiming for seven million by the end of march. peter doocy's live at the white house with more on all these numbers. what does the white house have to say about enrollment? >> the word "solid" is how the administration is describing these numbers for the first half of the open enrollment period even though the largest part of that group are older people experts say more likely to get sick, just shy of medicaid eligibility. that would be the 33% aged 55-64 compared, of course, with only 24% of those young invincibles. but, again, the administration says that's okay because young people, they say, tend to wait until the last minute, and that 24% number closely tracks the massachusetts roll outnumbers. rollout numbers. >> the web site which functioned very badly at the beginning of october would be a different experience by the end of november. we have delivered on that commitment. we want to move forward and take full advantage of the 11 weeks left. >> reporter: and the administration also says the 2.2 million sign-ups shows a good trajectory, but that is only about half the number of completed applications, 4.3 million, and a fraction of the 53.2 million visitors to state and federal web sites and the 11.3 million calls that came in between october 1st and december 28th. jenna? jenna: peter, what are republicans saying about these enrollment details? >> reporter: jenna, they don't think there are enough details because most specifically, that 2.2 million person figure combining the state and federal enrollment the administration says, that includes people who have paid a premium and have not paid a premium. so now tennessee republican congresswoman marsha blackburn has just a two-word statement, and all it says is who's paid? and eric cantor said this morning he's going to push for new legislation that would require more transparency from the administration. >> the numbers are as bad as they seem with the lack of information, just imagine perhaps how bad it really is. so we need to get to the bottom of this. people's health care is at stake. people's pocketbooks are at stake. >> reporter: and another very important number in the hhs report, 79% -- that's how many people have signed up for a plan who qualify for federal subsidies and, thus, lower premiums. jenna? jenna: peter doocy from a rainy white house today. peter, thank you very much. jon: for more on this, let's bring in a.b. stoddard, associate editor and columnist for "the hill," and tim carney, senior political columnist at "the washington examiner." so the health insurance companies, a.b., are saying that if these numbers persist, their profits are going to be cut in half. i mean, profit doesn't have to be a dirty word in this country. what are they supposed to do then? >> no, that's right. insurance companies were always going to be a key stakeholder in this process, and president obama brought them in to make sure this will ultimately pass. as you know, it was a very contentious, partisan process, and in the end, the insurance companies have not to be made whole for to work. my kind of demographic breakup that is heavily subsidized, mostly sick that ends up cutting insurance companies' profits in half is going to come, trickle down, obviously, to the consumer, and it's going to result in higher prices. and that's why in these ten weeks remaining the administration has to find more young and healthy people, particularly who are going to pay. and what the republicans are talking about on the hill is right, 2.1 million enrollees do not mean 2.1 million insured people. so, again, it's hard to really make conclusions about this data when we're not talking about people who are all officially in the program yet. jon: well, if the health insurance companies are going to see their profits cut substantially, tim, it would seem our own two choices, they can either raise premiums which have already been described as pretty high under obamacare, or they can get more subsidies from the government, right? from taxpayers. >> obamacare included lots of provisions for subsidizing the insurers. it's ironic president obama's sort of anti-insurer rhetoric during the bill, there's all sorts of things. risk corridors, there's reinsurance programs, and a lot of it gives the administration leeway. they can tweak it one way, tweak it another, expand it, and so i think that if they don't get the numbers that they're hoping for, sebelius is promising that, you know, spring surge in young people, they will have to bail out the insurers to keep them from either collapsing or raising the rate. and a lot of republicans might not stand for such a bailout. they might try to block that legislatively, and that would be quite a legislative battle on the hill. jon: a.b., isn't it true that already under the sign-ups we've seen four out of five people who had signed up for obama care qualify for tax ackier subsidy, right? >> right. and we don't even know how many of those are going into medicaid. if you look at the ten weeks remaining that they say is going to be this last minute rush to fill up the pools and going to be more evenly divided in terms of risk, they have a campaign person they've hired to make this public relations push, to find these people, these invincibles. it's really hard to imagine they're going to end up finding people who are paying. so we're looking at heavily subsidized people, perhaps in a balanced pool. and ultimately, the administration admitted anyway that they have a very tough time seeing how they're going to collect the penalty fees for those who don't opt in. so look at the taxpayer-provided bailout for the insurance company combine with the the fact that we can't even collect any penalties, and it's really going to be an incredible hit to the deficit. jon: tim, you've got 2.2 million people signed up by the end of 2013, that's whey lower than health and human services said you needed to get this program rolling. you've got four out of five on subsidies, and you've got a much smaller percentage than expected young and healthy. so how can the white house crow that these are, quote, solid numbers? that's what they're bragging about. >> well, the four out of five actually doesn't differ that much from the original projections. but you're right about the sheer number and the demographic mix. at first they said the number was what they were aiming for, then they shifted to the demographic mix. they're really just trying to save face and not panic and sort of run out the clock and hope they get this spring surge. i do think the more likely thing is that the administration is going to be in the position of trying to push an insurer bailout. the question will be, will the insurers be able to get the republicans to say, hey, you've got to save our industry, or will the republicans say, no, we want to kill this horrible bill. that will be the fight in the heart of republicans coming this spring. jon: and, ultimately, the taxpayer ends up constituting the bill. tim carney, a.b. stoddard, thank you both. >> thank you. jenna: speaking of the young and seemingly invincible, we want to take you to a live shot over justin bieber's house in california, and here's the news today from the l.a. county sheriff's department. apparently, they served a warrant about an hour ago at justin bieber's house. this is a follow-up, apparently, to an egg incident at his neighbor's. it's no secret, it's widely reported, that justin bieber has clashed with the neighbors in his neighborhood, and according to tmz, a recent incident may have led to about $20,000 worth of damage at his neighbor's home. we don't know all the facts. we have some reports from tmz. the likely charge, according to tm or z, if police do find something in justin bieber's house that lead him to be guilty of this incident, it could be a felony vandalism charge which could be fairly serious. a felony. so we'll keep you posted on that. justin bieber, search warrant, los angeles today. >>> well, shocking developments concerning the nuclear deal with iran. why the country's president calls the agreement a surrender by the united states and other world powers to iranian demands. >>> plus, an all-out manhunt for a serial arsonist behind this massive fire and at least a dozen others. the breaking details in a live report just ahead. ♪ ♪ in my world, ll isn't a street. return on investment isn't the only return i'm looking foard to. and my parachute definitely isn't golden.

themselves, basically, in the same area of san jose, not far from downtown. they've hit a number of the older victorian-style homes in the area as well as some apartment complexes. very dangerous, thankfully, no serious injuries thus far. but when you talk to people in the area including the pastor of a church who's been hit twice by this suspect, they're very concerned and disturbed about what's happening. >> for someone to do what he's doing, we never know what in an individual mind. one thing we know as a community of faith, he's lost. >> they hit our house, and then they hit the house across the street a day or two later. seems to be pretty brazen. >> reporter: here's a look at the suspect. it's been released, his sketch, according to the police. they believe he's a latino or a white man aged 25-40, about six feet tall, weighs about 160-180 pounds. he was wearing baggy clothes, large-framed glasses and is very thin. a city councilman is organizing people overnight, kind of like a neighborhood watch taking two-hour shifts. very concerned in california because of the fire season in general. you add a situation with an arsonist, it's, obviously, very disturbing for a lot of people in san jose. and at hour the manhunt continues, $10,000 reward. jenna: hopefully, that reward and the sketch help. adam, thank you. jon: well, it's 1500 pages and a price tag of more than $1 trillion. coming up, the new spending bill lawmakers just unveiled and exactly what's in it. >>> and from russia with no love. next, the american journalist who say ises he was kicked out of the country because of his long history of critical reporting on the russian government. >> we see a tendency toward a return to cold war tactics and even beyond. óqoqúúÑ@ ♪ ♪ jon: just into the fox newsroom, new jersey's governor, chris christie, going to be making his state of the state address this afternoon in trenton. it's an opportunity for him to talk about things like property tax relief and safer streets, but we are told the governor will address the george washington bridge scandal in that speech. as you know, he's been under the microscope because some of his aides, he says, ordered a political vendetta of sorts against the mayor of fort lee who had not supported him in the election. they closed off the george washington bridge, made a mess of traffic in the his town for four days. governor christie will be addressing that in his state of the state speech this afternoon. jenna: well, right now an american journalist is accusing russia of barring him from reentering the country. that's because russia actually did that. there is no accusation. david satter of radio-free europe was ordered to leave the country last month. russian officials said he failed to extend his visa in time, but there's more to the story. he's firing back telling "the guardian" that his expulsion is an act of retribution over years of critical reporting. >> it was typical during the soviet period to accuse foreign correspondents of being spies. but to make a direct accusation of that time against a journal itself in post-soviet russia is, in fact, extremely rare. jenna: david is now in london, we have a former moscow bureau chief for "newsweek" who was also expelled from russia in 1982. it's nice to have you. >> thank you, jenna. jenna: you have some things in common with david. you're not only friends with him, but you had been reporting in russia for some time when you were expelled, and you were allowed to go back. tell us about your experience. >> well, i went there, of course, it was a different era. it was the soviet era. i went there in 1981, i was there 14 months. i reported all sorts of stories they did not like, and they expelled me after only 14 months. david the was the financial times correspondent there, and he was a neighbor of mine, and we went on many reporting trips together. we got in of trouble together, the kgb would follow you very to accelerately in those days -- overtly in those days. he stuck with it, stayed in russia for several years, kept going back. he's very knowledgeable about russia, its history, its culture, its politics. so what everyone thinks of his various interpretations, he was clearly a high-profile target for them. jenna: and it's important to note that he's been there several times over a period of four decades. and this is the first time that he's ever had any sort of an issue. he says no accusations were made, but that a he was told that his presence was undesirable in the country. >> he was told that as the other part of the statement, apparently, from the russian embassy official was that the, quote-unquote, competent organs had decided he was undesirable. it really reminded me of my own expulsion when i got a statement from the foreign ministry saying i had been engaged in impermissible methods of journalistic activities, this kind of very awkward, bureaucratic language to basically say two things. i mean, when you have an expulsion, you target a journalist who has been troublesome to you for whatever reason, and you particularly want to get rid of. but you're also trying to send a message to other journalists, look, you can get in trouble too. be careful about what you report. jenna: and that brings us to the question of why now? why do you think the putin government now decided it was the time that david should no longer work there? >> that's a very interesting question. david, i heard in one of his interviews, said something like it doesn't make sense because they've made a number of conciliatory gestures. they've released a billionaire businessman, the members of pussy riot, the band, some of the greenpeace activists. but, you know, there can be two things going on here. at the same time, they want to create a more open image to the world, but they also want, they know they're going to have an influx of reporting for the sew chi olympics, and this may be one way of kicking out someone who's been a longtime critic of russia and making him an example. jenna: well, and it's the first time an accredited u.s. journalist has been expelled from russia. so it is an american that's been targeted. >> since the soviet days. jenna: since the soviet days. >> right. jenna: the fact that it's an american, again, ahead of the olympics, we also have the edward snowden dynamics despite some of the political prisoners that had been released by vladimir putin, is it a direct message to the united states? >> i think it's always a bit of a message to the united states, but in russia often things are not as clear cut as one would expect. you know, because of these other actions which putin took to try to southern of soften his image, you'd like to say two steps forward, one step back -- jenna: you actually were able to go back and report while putin was in power, and you noticed a difference. >> oh, yes. i got back in for the first time in '89, things had loosened up, and in the '90s for journalists things were a hot freer. then in the early putin era, i went back to do a story about him of after he'd been elected president, and the first encounter i had with a member of of his team, they said, oh, we remember, you had some problems in this country. i said, yes, i did. well, i was a university student in those days, and i read all your stories in "newsweek." i said, that's interesting, "newsweek" did not circulate freely. he said, well, yes, but i was a member of the kgb, i had privileged access. told you under putin the kgb credentials were once again envogue. jenna: well, it's nice to have an audience, no matter how dynamic. [laughter] andrew, great to have your perspective, thank you very much. jon? jon: there are new developments in the irs political profiling scandal where agents stand accused of targeting tea party and other conservative groups. well, now we're told the fbi essentially will let the irs off the hook saying it didn't do anything criminally wrong. our legal panel weighs in. >> nearly three years in waiting for an answer is totally unacceptable. the irs needs to be held accountable for its incompetence, harassment and groups. thank you.er at 100 calories or less, there are plenty of reasons people are saying "progress-oh!" share your progress-oh! story on progresso.com. jenna: the controversy over proposed rule changes at the i.r.s. as the agency looks to limit the political activities of social welfare groups like some tea party organizations. some of the very same non profits the i.r.s. stands of unfairly targeting and while campaign finance groups see this as a way to clarify the political activities of these organizations, tea party groups say the rule change would limit their freedom of speech. our chief political correspondent is live in washington to break this all done. it's rather complicated. before we get to the rules, what's really going on in the investigation of all of this? >> well, hi. the f.b.i. has said they do not expect any criminal indictments coming. what they have done after a lengthy examination is looking at it's not really political bias. inappropriate, admittedly inappropriate scrutiny to these groups but the problem is that the i.r.s., the agency in charge of dealing with tax exemption couldn't understand their own rules and subsequently the mistakes were made. well, the inspector general of the i.r.s. who determined that these inappropriate behaviors had taken place recommended there would be some sort of clarification and new rules put together. in essence would they're saying is if the social welfare groups are unable to contain their political activity to less than 49% of their overall spending and involvement, then they're going to have to find some other way to declare themselves and ultimately, they would not be able to run specific ads 30 days before a primary nor would they be able to run ads 60 days before a general election. their use of direct mail, voter registration, get out the vote methods and candidate debates would all be regulated. i.r.s. said the changes wouldn't hope before the 2014 midterms. if a tax exempt social welfare group wants to spend more than 49% of money on politics, then they should be a super pac. they're fighting saying this is an enfringement of free speech but there's a long, long precedent of groups given specific regulations of their free speech rights. that's what they're debating. this will have another five, six weeks to be the end of february for public input and then the i.r.s. will go to work to write things up and then there will be hearings where the public can testify. look for a year wrong battle what the wrongs can do politically and how think disclose their spending and donors. jenna: interesting story. we'll continue to watch. thank you. >> you bet. >> my personal favorite was question number 33 which in relation to protests asking for a listing of our, quote, committed violations of local ordinances, breaches of public order or arrests and then requested details how we conduct or promote illegal activities. i stop the costly and exhausting i.r.s. process in july 2010. when he survive on my credit card and donations in our cake tin like patriots before us. we persevere. jon: you might remember that testimony from karen kinney, coordinator for the san fernando valley patriots in california. she's one of more than half a dozen people who testified before congress that the i.r.s. apparently targeted and stonewalled them. now as carl cameron just reported, f.b.i. did not plan to file criminal charges over this because investigators say they did not find the kind of political bias that rises to the level of a criminal violation. all that decision sparks this editorial in the "wall street journal" which explains, quote, not every scandal is a crime but if the report is right, it means no one will be held accountable in any meaningful way for the taxing power of the state. this is why americans don't trust government. joining us now, our legal panel today, lis wiehl, fox news legal analyst and doug burns, a former federal prosecutor. does it surprise you nobody found any criminal wrongdoing at the i.r.s.? >> absolutely. it all surprised me we're even talking about it, that the f.b.i. is coming out and saying pretty much, we've investigated thoroughly and i want to talk about that because i don't think that's happened. we have investigated thoroughly and we've come to a conclusion there are no criminal charges. that never happens. the f.b.i., the feds, prosecutors are not supposed to do that. you never confirm or deny whether an investigation is going on or has concluded. the confirmation of the kwks of an investigation is an indictment. that's what happens so it's strange. is this a test balloon for the public to see how the public will react? jon: there's one attorney who represents a number of these tea party and conservative groups. a boz en or more. she said the f.b.i. hasn't even contacted the members of her group that she represents. so how can it be a thorough investigation if the folks haven't been contacted? >> first of all, let me repeat her point. in the day-to-day practice of federal criminal law, we do not repeat, do not get called up and are told the investigation is over. you can all rest easy. in fact, it's 180 degree opposite and it's the sort of hanging over the head and people get arrested after two years of mreet and total inactivity. it's surprising to hear the government making this announcement. having said that, though, we can't really prejudge it is investigation because we don't know the internal specifics of it. >> we don't know the internal specifics but we do know from lawyers from conservative groups that were targeted because they've said we haven't been reached out to. we haven't heard from the f.b.i. we haven't been investigated. we haven't been able to tell our side of the story. so you know, it hasn't really been all that thorough. jon: the justice department prosecutor handling the case, doug, according to the house oversight committee, he said that prosecutor made donations to the obama campaign. that's hardly an impartial prosecutor in a case like this. isn't it? >> i mean, first of all, you do have an administration investigating itself, raising all kinds of obvious conflicts and calls for maybe having someone independent being involved and you're right. it's not all kinds of political situations, who is the u.s. attorney, what are the relationships, what is going on? but again, it bears repeating, nobody ever gets a phone call being told the investigation is over. doesn't happen. >> even more importantly, when you have the fox watching the proverbial hen house to keep it quiet about what's going on with the investigation. right? wouldn't you think at that point where all of this potential conflicts out there, they would be more careful about keeping quiet? >> what lis is saying is amazing. 99% of the time you hear rhetoric about we cannot get into any specifics and then here it's the exact opposite. so she's right. jon: but the basic defense here seems to be, you know, that the f.b.i. has looked into this and found that the f.b.i. is not a bunch of crooks. they're just incompetent. >> exactly. that's the defense. jon: the i.r.s., i should say. >> they don't know their own rules and then i'm thinking, oak. these are people that, you know, we're paying for? and keeping in their jobs and these are high level people that are being told, and we do know this from some sources, being told look at certain groups for political reasons? jon: and they have access to all of our personal information. that's great. >> exactly. and they don't know their own rules. jon: thank you. >> my pleasure. jenna: right now congress reaching an agreement on a massive new spending deal. just a short time ago, house leaders on both sides you be veiling their plan which is expected to cost more than a trillion dollars. this to avoid yet another government shutdown so what is exactly in the trillion dollar deal? our chief congressional correspondent is live with more on this. mike? >> hi, jenna. yes. 1,500 plus page bill and here is a sample of what is in it. it fixes military retiree benefits for the disabled and for the families of the fallen. it does not include new funding for obamacare and it does hold the line on the medicare agency handling implementation. there's a pay freeze for the vice president and senior political appointees and it would give federal agencies some certainty and fund the government through october. with the government due to run out of money tomorrow, speaker boehner talked about a temporary extension and the need to act quickly. >> we're in a situation where the government is, in fact, going to run out of money. we'll have to move a short-term c.r. but we want to get this government funding in place as soon as possible. and i think under the circumstances what we're doing is appropriate. >> senate appropriations chair pose for this lovely photo and say they're pleased to have come to a fair, bipartisan agreement on funding the government in 2014. they say while their differences were many and the deadlines short, they drafted a solid bill based on the guidelines of last month's ryan murray budget deal. president obama urged congress to pass it as soon as possible. >> i was very pleased to see the house and the senate agree to a budget and to put forward a bill that will fund our government at levels to allow us to take some important steps to provide the services and the help that americans need and the american families need more to get ahead in this economy. >> while there are complaints from conservatives about not cutting spending more and complaints about others from not funding pet projects, nobody up here on the hill seems to be in the mood for another government shutdown at this point. jenna: mike, thank you. jon: it was a lovely photo, wasn't it? jenna: it was. i like those. more congressional -- just like that. thank you, jon. exactly. we can just capture those moments together during commercial. jon: that's great. she vanished from her parents' hotel room during a vacation in portugal. why british police say they may be closer than ever to figuring out what happened to littlemade. plus why millions of direct tv customers could have a harder time finding the weather report these days. so ally bank has a raise your rate cd that wothat's correct.a rate. cause i'm really nervous about getting trapped. why's that?

satellite service with both companies now blaming each other. patti ann browne is live with more on this. >> well, that's right, jenna. mid light last night, the weather channel went dark on direct tv. that impacts 20 million customers of the satellite service nationwide. weather channel had asked for a fee increase and no agreement was reached before the deadline. the weather channel said it offered direct tv the best rate. the channel even accuses direct tv of putting profits ahead of public safety. watch this video from weather channel. >> only the weather channel is committed to telling you the entire story, to make sure you're informed and safe before, during and after the worst of it. >> but direct tv says there are plenty of other places to get weather news. direct tv's local network affiliates provide extensive coverage of local weather events and the channels are available as needed. direct tv even has its own weather nation channel. direct tv said it launched that service in response to complaints from viewers that the weather channel runs too much reality programming. direct tv also notes many people rely on the internet and mobile apps for weather updates but the weather channel is going as far as asking viewers to pressure congress to intervene citing the channel's mission to serve. the weather channel is a private, for profit business. it's owned by the nbc group that owns comcast. direct tv says the two sides are still talking. jenna: thanks. jon: just an hour from now, members of the n.s.a. reform panel will testify before a senate committee on dozens of recommendations for the agency's controversial surveillance programs. our chief intelligence correspondent live in washington with more on that. >> thank you, jon. hearing brings together the n.s.a. reform panel and they're responsible for the 46 recommendations given to the president. members of the judiciary committee home to some of the most outspoken critics are expected to push the panel aggressively to justify the regulations and why more reform is not on the table. this morning a study by the new america foundation, washington based think tank wants to know why the bulk of the phone records did not thwart major terrorist events. that's consistent with the panel findings. out of 225 cases, groups found, quote, no discernible impact. a former hills staffer with experience explains the reform dilemma. >> i think the congress is bitterly divided right now. the power brokers in the house and the senate have different takes on whether the phone records program has been successful or not. generally i think that's a recipe for inaction over the long term but there are two wild cards. >> and one of those wild cards, according to allen, is edward snowden and whether he will continue to leak more documents. line share of which have not dealt with the privacy rights of american citizens but rather, sources and methods and u.s. alliances overseas. this hearing really sets the table for mr. obama who will address the n.s.a. controversy on friday in that long awaited public address and the expectation is that there will be some executive action but some reform will require legislative action and that looks like it may be a tough nut to crack right now, jon. jon: it does. thank you. jenna: speaking of surveillance, some happen voluntarily through social media. google unveiling what they call their heat map. it shows the top 15,000 photograph locations on the planet. as part of the company's new panarimo services, where you can allow geo tag photos in google

MSNBC
Jan 14, 2014 8:00am PST
the george washington bridge were political retaliation. and 80% expect more christie staffers will be implicated. on the question of christie himself, 52% think he knew about what his staff was up to before the news broke, and 51% say christie has not been completely honest. joining us right now from trenton, new jersey, nbc's kelly o'donnell has been following the story for us. welcome to both of you. kelly, you're going to kick us off here. how much does christie's state of the state speech, i understand you've had glimpses of excerpts of it. how much of it is going to focus on the bridge scandal we have heard? >> well, aides have not addressed that directly, but what we can expect is because the state of the state address is its sort of own entity, annual event that is intended to talk to the state, to the lawmakers about the critical issues, so expect most of it to be about substance and policy. the governor is going to talk about education reforms he'd like to make, including extending the day and the school year for new jersey students, talking about property taxes, talking about issues that he will hope become the headlines and sort of redirect some of the conversation. the political reality is all of his remarks today will be seen in the context of this storm that he is in over what his aides did, what he may or may not have known, how his administration has handled it, so we don't know if he will address it directly. i've repeatedly asked and have not heard back, but i think an assessment of what christie's style is, i would expect he would make some, at least reference to the circumstances. now aides did tell us that he will send a message to the people of new jersey and to the lawmakers who will be listening, urging them to put aside politics for the sake of getting things done. that might be in itself kind of a reference to the political trouble that he is facing and those in his administration have sort of generated for him. so, specifics we don't yet know. 3:00 is when he delivers this address. it's something a governor must do every year, and it will carry some of the political theater of the lawmakers there to greet him, the march from christie's own office, down the hall, and to the chamber. there will be lots of different levels here, policy and politics will come together. richard? >> let's talk about that politics part more, kelly, christie's people hitting back on the controversy over sandy relief, that relief that was spent on tourism ads featuring the governor. here's what new jersey governor frank pallone had to say yesterday, then i'll get your reaction. >> i don't think there's any question that, you know, this was an effort to promote him. but the problem is, it was at the expense of money from the taxpayers that could have been used for other sandy purposes. >> so, kelly, how are christie's people handling that one? >> well, this is not a new issue, richard. it was brought up last summer and during the re-election campaign by christie's democratic opponent and by critics who said it was too much about the governor himself, and so aides have said to us that, first of all, this was hud grant funding that was approved by the obama administration, so they got this contract approved. then there is now a federal audit. it's not really an investigation, it's a federal audit being done by the inspector general at hud, the department of housing and urban development. they'll look at the contract and look at what the contractor provided and for how much. now, aides say that they expect, because that's a normal process, that it will be ultimately show that the use of that tourism budget was worthwhile to help get people to come back to new jersey, spend money here. even democrats say they wanted a tourism campaign. the question is, did christie's involvement take it too political. richard? >> charles, to you. those new poll numbers have a good news and bad news for christie here. the good news is that his approval rating is still high and down only slightly from december. the bad news, most of jersey at the moment is paying attention to the scandal and about two-thirds believe the reason behind the shutdown was political retribution. for you, how much of a lasting impact do you think there will be with new jersey voters based on what's happened so far? >> well, i think it all depends on the subsequent revelations. i think if it stopped dead right here, which it's not, i think he'd be fine, but i think there's going to be some more peeling away of the onion, if you will. we have multiple investigations, now have democrats in the legislature, which controls the legislature, literally stepping over each other with subpoena power and special counsels to probe this matter. we also have the u.s. attorney's office poking into it. so i think what the poll shows is that christie begins this trial, if you will, trial by fire, with a significant reservoir of goodwill to draw from, but as we proceed forward, he's going to be depleting that bank pretty quickly. >> you know, charles, another number from the poll saying 80% think more staffers will be implicated here. you brought up the list or potential list of those who might be subpoenaed. might we see michelle brown, a christie appointee that you're familiar with, she was appointed to the economic development authority, leading that. "the new york times" saying officials believe she used her position improperly for christie's gain. what do you know about her or perhaps others that might be brought into this to have to testify? >> well, you know, that's -- all those names, i think, as we saw from the stack of e-mails that came out over the weekend, we saw more names in this administration. look, this is an administration that is tightly run, tightly run with loyalists, who are devoted to chris christie. they trust him. he trusts them, and it's because of that loyalty that it gives it such resonance. this is not -- he does try to impart the impression that he's a delegator, but he delegates to a close-knit circle, so, yeah, i think you're going to see more names come forward. or put under the spotlight. definitely. >> all right, charles stiles, thank you so much. nbc's kelly o'donnell, as well. appreciate both of your time today. >>> one other story line hurting chris christie, other unconfirmed tales of political retribution. several democratic new jersey mayors say they, too, felt the bullying wrath of chris christie. joining us now, democratic congressman rush holt of new jersey. congressman, thanks for joining us. you said -- >> good to be with you. >> you said in the past christie has had a bullying streak. have you had a personal interaction, information, or conversation where you felt that was the case? >> well, i think everyone in new jersey has seen that, the way he has treated teachers, the way he's treated citizens at town meetings, and as you now refer to, the way that he has treated mayors and others. i've certainly seen mayors who say, well, if i don't support him in the election, even if they are in the other party, i don't think i'm going to get anything from him. so, yes, that's been the style that's been set. and that, i think, is what i find troubling, i think what a lot of citizens find troubling, is, you know, it strikes at the heart of what government is about. in government, the people seed some power to some individuals so that those leaders, those individuals, will work for the common good, not for their own benefit or for the benefit of their party or of their donors. and so this really strikes at the heart of that compact of government here. >> let me ask you this -- >> that's what people find troubling. >> we were just talking about that new poll with our previous group of journalists, a new poll finding that just over half of new jersey voters don't think christie has been completely honest about the scandal to date. 51 to 40. how long have you known him, and tell us about what you may believe he may be covering up, because you said in the past you believe he was covering up some things. >> well, what i said was, and i've repeated, is that in politics, there's an important rule to remember, it's the coverup that gets you. i'm not saying what it is or even if it is that christie is covering things up, but, you know, i think his press conference the other day was, you know, if nothing else were to happen, it would be called a masterpiece of damage control. but, in fact, it was really troubling, because, you know, he was at times angry and sad and crest fallen and disappointed. he said i am not a bully. i am honored to be considered for the presidency. i am so disappointed and sad. well, he was saddened not by what had happened to the people of ft. lee or the citizens trying to cross the bridge, he was saddened that he had been lied to. it was all about him. >> how much do you think we don't know yet? >> i think probably quite a lot. and i really want to commend the members of the state assembly, wisniewski, the state senator, loretta weinberg. they have kept pushing on this when the press and people said you're wasting your time, get off it. let's get on with business, but they, in fact, realized that there was a serious breach of trust here, an abuse of power. and now that the e-mails are out showing that it was an abuse of power, we know some people in his office were abusing power. we know the port authority has disended from what was some decades ago a very good nonpartisan public agency into a partisan -- you know, a grab bag of political patronage and a cash cow for the states of new york and new jersey, rather than an agency that's supposed to serve the public. so we've seen there's an abuse of power. it looks to me like it goes pretty far and pretty deep. so i think we'll hear more, and, you know, so christie's press conference the other day, although it seemed to put -- he thought it would put this behind him, actually, it dug him in deeper, because as more things come out, he will look more responsible, if not directly culpable. >> congressman rush holt of new jersey, thank you for your time today. >>> a reminder, governor christie's state of the state address happens later today at 3:00 a.m. eastern. we'll have live coverage on msnbc. that brings us to the big question, how much, if any lasting political damage has the bridgegate scandal done to new jersey governor chris christie?

up a massive government funding bill that nixes the threat of another government shutdown. negotiators have released their bill that funds the government through september the 30th. it puts $521 billion into defense, $492 billion in other programs. there's no new funding for obamacare, but some sequester easing. there's even a ban on new light bulb standards, a 1% pay raise for federal workers. it also bars officials from ending saturday mail delivery. both sides putting their spin on the compromise. >> it is a step forward. it's not the number that we had wanted, but the one we're forced to deal with and it's a mitigation of sequester for this year, and i think for that, many of us in the democratic caucus are grateful. >> we're in a situation where the government is, in fact, going to run out of money. we're going to have to move a short-term c.r., but we want to get this government funding in place as soon as possible. >> joining me now is democratic congressman steve israel of new york. he's also the chair of the democratic congressional campaign committee. congressman, great to see you. we expect to be getting in video from the white house very shortly, when it does come in, we'll have to run straight to it, but i want to get to what's in front of you, there's a timeline, you have until wednesday, i believe, time frame that looks like it won't be made. >> yeah, thanks for having me on, richard. we have a short-term extension that will get us through the week. i expect that the house will have our vote before we leave on thursday at noon. and when we vote is less important than what we're voting on. this compromise is a vast improvement over the tea party budget that the house republicans tried to inflict on the country in the past several years. it makes important new investments in things like head start. there are some improvements that it needs. i would like to see increased investments in the n.i.h. and cancer research, alzheimer's research, but it is a compromise, and step two will be electing a house democratic majority that will build budgets that invest in the middle class. it's a compromise, but at the end of the day, i would like to have an even better compromise. >> as a compromise, there's winners and losers, and that's what we got here, head start wins, it's fully restored. military personnel get a raise here, no new money for obamac e obamacare. joe biden gets a pay freeze. what doesn't sit right for you about this budge? >> n.i.h. funding, the investments that we make in research of health and decision, it is a budget, but the house republicans will leave town this week without increasing minimum wage, without -- >> congressman, stand by. i apologize, the president making comments at a cabinet meeting. take a listen. >> official cabinet meeting of the year, and i want to wish everybody a wonderful new year. we've got a lot to do in 2014. as i've said before, this is going to be a year of action. we've seen the economy improve. we want to maximize the pace of our recovery, but most importantly, we want to make sure that every american is able to benefit from that recovery, that we're not leaving everybody behind, and everybody is getting a fair shot. i was very pleased to see the house and the senate agree to a budget and to put forward a bill that will fund our government, as well as allow us to take some important steps to provide the services and the help that americans need and the american families need in order to get ahead in this economy, and so i would urge that congress pass that funding measure as quickly as possible so that all these agencies have certainty around their budgets. and congress is going to have some additional work over the course of the next several weeks, specifically, it's important that they do something about unemployment insurance, although we've seen improvements in the economy and job creation in our economy, i think we all know that there are a lot of hard working americans out there who are desperately looking for a job, and unemployment insurance is not only good for them and necessary for them, but it's also good for our economy as a whole and will actually accelerate our growth if we go ahead and get that done. we know that we need to get immigration reform done. a major piece of unfinished business from last year. so, congress is going to be busy, and i'm looking forward to working with democrats and republicans, house members and senate members, to try to continue to advance the economic recovery and to provide additional av few knews of opportunity for everybody, but one of the things i'll be emphasizing in this meeting is that we are not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we're providing americans the kind of help that they need. i've got a pen and i've got a phone, and i can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward in helping to make sure our kids are getting the best education possible, making sure that our businesses are getting the kind of support and help they need to grow and advance, to make sure that people are getting the skills that they need to get those jobs that our businesses are creating. and i've got a phone that allows me to convene americans from every walk of life, nonprofits, businesses, the private sector, universities, to try to bring more and more americans together around what i think is a unifying theme, making sure that this is a country where if you work hard, you can make it. and so one of the things that i'm going to be talking to my cabinet about is how do we use all the tools available to us, not just legislation, in order to advance a mission that i think unifies all americans, the belief that everybody's got to take responsibility, everybody's got to work hard, but if you do, that you can support a family and meet the kinds of obligations that you have to yourself and your family, but also to your communities and to your nation. we're already seeing some examples of that. in fact, this week i'll be traveling tomorrow down to north carolina to talk about a manufacturing innovation hub that we initiated, talked about in our state of the union last year. it's going to be moving forward, and there are a lot of folks down in north carolina who are excited, because it's a perfect example of the kind of public-private partnership that can really make a difference in growing our economy faster and creating the kinds of good-paying jobs that help people get ahead. i'll also be pulling together university presidents from all across the country to talk about how we can make college education more accessible to more young people around this country, and we're going to be bringing ceos from across the country in also to have a conversation about commitments they can make to start hiring the long-term unemployed, people who oftentimes have terrific skills, have great work ethic, had wonderful experience, but because of the misfortune of having been laid off or lost their jobs in the depths of a extremely severe recession, have been out of work long enough and now are finding it's hard for them to just get in the door and make their case to an employer, that there's some screaming mistake for people who have been out of work for more than a month or two and makes it harder for them to get the kind of shot they need. and we're going to try to work with ceos to make a pledge we're going to take a second look at these americans who are very eager to get back to work and have the capacity to do so, but aren't getting the kind of shot they need. so, overall, the message to my cabinet that will be amplified in our state of the union is that we need all hands on deck to build on the recovery that we're already seeing. the economy's improving, but it can be improving even faster. a lot of people are doing better than they were in the depths of the recession, but there's still a lot of folks who need help, and i am absolutely confident that in 2014, if we're all working in the same direction, not worrying so much about political points, but worrying much more about getting the job done, that we can see a lot of improvement this year and people will look back on 2014 as a year in which we didn't just turn the corner in the aggregate for the economy, but everybody started feeling a little more optimistic about our futures, so i'm looking forward to the discussion and with that, i'm going to kick you all out. actually, it's getting close, so i'll have quite a bit to say about that very soon. >> how will that affect -- >> thank you, guys. >> all right, president obama there with his presidential cabinet, first meeting of the year. as you heard, about six, seven minutes of his commentary. we still have with us democratic congressman steve israel of new york. congressman, you were listening along with us here. one of the things that stood out from the president, he said he's got a pen and a phone and he was eluding to some of the solutions that might be cobbled together to assist those who are long-term unemployed. is that communication key, and how might that improve the opportunities for this long-term unemployed? he said he might reach out to ceos, he's going to have conversations with them, he's going to reach out to congress. talk about that and what's your reaction? >> it is imperative, richard, the president said i have a pen, a pulpit, a phone, and republicans in the house say that's great, we have our special interest pacs and we will flood the zone with our special interest money to block unemployment insurance, to block an increase in the minimum wage, to stop an immigration bill, to divest from the middle class, so it is critical people understand the next ten months and two years is going to be about who's side are you on? on the side of the middle class, somebody who lost a job through no fault of his own who needs a bit of a bridge to find another job, or are you going to continue to defend subsidies to big oil companies? this is about the contrast, and i welcome the fight over those contrasts. >> again, we're talking about numbers in the 4 millions when we're looking at these long-term unemployed who are at risk based on what may or may not happen coming from congress. democratic congressman steve israel, thank you for being with us as we were listening to the president just moments ago. >>> got an update on

>> well, he will have to convince the state legislature, which is run by democrats, of why they should trust him. right now all the stories are coming out is when you disagree with chris christie, there will be payback, whether through his aides, whether through him. that is yet to be seen, but right now, there really isn't a spirit of cooperation and bipartisanship in new jersey, it's all about bullying and retribution. so chris christie will really need to make the case that new jersey is ready for that, and he can sort of overcome all these bullying stories. >> all the bullying stories, see how much he addresses specifically some of these stories and scandals. steve to you, new jersey's mayor saying the meetings with high level officials that were cancelled and they were cancelled within a span of about an hour after he told christie aides he could not endorse christie during the election. how can christie show this kind of behavior not the norm for him? >> it's a real challenge. i think last week when we saw him at his press conference, he went out of his way to say it was an aberration, completely outside the norm, and yesterday we see these e-mails showing the exact opposite, that, in fact, we have a pattern in which the christie administration exacts retribution on those who disappoint him, the governor politically. i think that creates a larger scandal. it reenforces the fact there's a pattern of behavior that, in fact, raises additional questions about the character of the governor's office. >> and the question is, how long will new jersey voters remember this? viviana, the new poll we've been talking about this hour shows 83% of new jersey voters are paying close attention to the scandal so far. if he runs for president, 2016, will they forget about this by then? >> it's really possible, richard, and certainly, that's what governor christie would like. the important thing to keep in mind, though, is that two years until the presidential election if we're still looking at chris christie's presidential ambitions is an absolute eternity in political time. in the same time that 86% of new jersey voters are focused on this, only about 18% of national voters were up to date on this. they were more concerned with the cold weather snap. really what chris christie has to do going forward is be 100% transparent. if that means, for example, opening some kind of independent commission to have a parallel study to the different inquiries that are going on, go ahead and do that. the second thing he needs to do is give out a big dollop of humility. he would be very well served to show acts of humility, which is connected to the third thing he should be doing, and that has to do with getting the job done. last week he resigned the dream act. going forward today he's talking about the state of the state and some education, public safety initiatives. that's the kind of stuff that's going to play well at home with new jersey voters and nationwide, richard. >> either more uphill or downhill for him. let's switch gears and talk about president obama. we were just listening to comments he made before his cabinet meeting, two weeks away from his state of the union address, as he eluded to. he's meeting with his cabinet at the moment and has a warning for congress i want to replay for you. take a listen. >> one of the things i'll be emphasizing in this meeting is the fact that we are not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we're providing americans the kind of help that they need. i've got a pen and i've got a phone. >> pen and a phone. steve, how far can he take his agenda forward without the help of congress? executive orders notwithstanding. >> yeah, he tried this before in 2012. he had a campaign in which he thought he'd launch a series of initiatives belt around executive actions and executive orders. to be sure, they were worthwhile ideas, but in general when push comes to shove, real change comes by way of major legislation and that means he'll have to rely on a do-nothing congress. that's a real challenge. republicans have shown no interest in job creation, no interest in economic growth. the president wants a year of action, it's going to be a tough hurdle to get congress to do its job. >> you were listening to that perhaps, as well, amanda, the president saying he's going to talk about the cabinet, talk about helping everyday americans, help the middle class, he's looking at the economic schedule going forward and he's going to be doing events related to that. if the president does undertake more executive orders and such things, if he doesn't wait, does he face more supreme court response as we have seen so far? >> he absolutely could, and i think that there will be groups trying to challenge him on that, but i really don't think the president has much to lose in doing this. what will happen, congress and the republicans in congress won't go along with him and will try to block him at every step. i mean, that worst-case scenario is already playing out for the president, so a lot of progressive groups have really wanted president obama to do a lot more, saying, look, congress is not going to go along with you. the republicans have said that their mission is to block you, so you need to get a lot more done on executive actions and with your presidential authority, so i think right now he should be doing as much as possible because not much is going to get through congress. >> and family members, democrats who have been watching the long-term unemployed as well as the economy itself here, viviana, they have been wondering if democrats had done enough given the bipartisan budget deal that was made last year and it did not include the extension of things such as the long-term unemployment benefits. what does a president need to do in his state of the union address to show americans and republicans that, you know, he wants to get this done as the leader of his party? >> and that's exactly it, richard, it comes down to the fact that the president is the leader of the party and he has probably one of the most powerful, if not the most powerful bully pulpits in the world, which is his seat of power as the american president. it is true that he does need to have legislation pass through congress and needs to collaborate with congress, that's not going to happen right now, especially the closer we get to 2014, certainly closer to 2016. but on the case of immigration, he was successful with executive action in the form of daca that gave reprieve to dreamers, students, undocumented students, who wanted to not live under the fear of deportation in order to continue studying for the next couple of years or so. this would go forward. it is true what steve says, executive action does not have the force of law and certainly not the staying power of law, but in the case of immigration, for example, pressing the pause button on deportation, something he can do, according to many advocates in the community, this is something that will give reprieve to millions of families. >> and the power of signaling, as you're eluding to there. amanda turkel, viviana, steve, be sure to tune into the chris christie state of the state address, 3:00 eastern, msnbc, we'll be covering that for you. >>> the new health care numbers are in. opponents of the president's reforms have pounced on this number, 24%. that's the proportion of enrollees described as young invincibles. critics want 40%. they believe that number is what will keep the program on budget and on course, otherwise, consumers will be hit with premium hikes starting next year. joining us now, zeke emanuel of the university of pennsylvania, physician and expert on the health system, often described as the architect of the affordable care act. great to see you here, zeke. several times you and i have had a chance to speak on this subject. hope you're having a good day. >> nice to be here, yes. >> you heard what i was saying, uninvincibles, 24% of the unrow l -- enrollees, what number do you need for the affordable care act work? >> a quarter is probably good enough, but you would like to see more of them come in for two reasons. one is, the pool to make sure you have enough healthy people balancing off older and sicker people, but also for their own benefit. i mean, remember, one of the reasons we're interested in health care and health insurance for people is to make sure they get some preventive test, but also if a disaster happens, they have coverage. so it's a benefit to them. >> why do you say 24% is good enough. what does good enough mean? >> well, the real question here, is the pool the right mix between healthy and sick, it's not really an age-related question, it's the amount of utilization that will keep premiums down, that you won't get so many people using so many services that premiums will have to go up next year and persuade people from buying insurance because it's too expensive. you want healthier people and young people tend to be healthier, that's why we're focused on young people. what we don't know, what proportion of this group is pretty healthy and isn't going to use that much resources, versus what proportion have chronic illness. that's the real number we want. that's the number we don't have. but studies have shown that about 24% will be pretty good. you would like it, again, up and we'd like it, everybody would like as many americans to be insured as possible. >> sure. let me put this in comparison, 24%, same number that massachusetts had three months after its program launched in '06, as you know. a look at some of the states right now shows that young people account for 30% of enrollees in new york, 27% of enrollees in maryland and virginia, 44% in washington, d.c. so really hitting those numbers that you say are needed and are better. what does that tell you in those examples what's happening? >> well, i think you have a very different response across the country, part of that is advertising, part of that is ease of use of the website. and i do think as we progress we know that young people who are healthy sort of put this at the back of their mind and tend to sign up like they do a lot of things sort of at the last minute, but the fact that some states like new york can really get to a high number suggests there is latent interest, and what we really have to do is stimulate that interest, advertise, and really inform these people they are going to get cheap rates because of the subsidies and that's something almost all the polling suggests they still haven't fully absorbed. >> what letter grade do you give the performance so far given the data? quickly, we got to go. >> i think we're at a "b," "b-plus." we had a "d" rollout of the website, but i'm expecting this to improve towards the march 31st deadline. i don't look at these numbers until right after march 31st. that's going to be the key moment when we look at the real numbers. >> thank you so much, zeke emanuel, for your time as always. >>> developing now, president obama will soon meet with the pope. that's the word today from secretary of state john kerry, who made the announcement while visiting the vatican today. the president will make his trip to the holy city. kerry met with the pope to discuss the obama agenda for the visit. kerry saying he was pleased to know the pope will continue to speak out about peace in the most middle east. >>> today's pick, back at haters after sunday's golden globes. critics started writing nasty tweets about her appearance and gabby spoke out, i'm mostly definitely cried about it on that private jet on the way to my dream job last nigh night, #justkidding. you can check out more of her red carpet pictures. there's a link on my facebook page. ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] you're watching one of the biggest financial services companies in the country at work. hey. thanks for coming over. hey.

going away and banks and retailers need to fight this together. fixing the nation's power grid. harvard has a master's presently to researchers will show us the future. tomorrow's business today. nasa's by a robot and why it could be crawling through your window during an emergency. matthew martoma could flip the sec's leader steve cohen. that and more on this hour of markets now. let's do this. connell: right to it today. dagen: breaking news from jpmorgan chase earnings call. the bank's chairman and ceo jamie dimon talking about babe reaches and that the credit card account, it is a big deal, not going away. calling on banks and retailers to come together to battle these attacks on the heels of a report saying the attacks on personal information tied the markets are just the tip of the iceberg. security experts telling leaders of the retailers could be coming out with similar reports about reaches over the same time. connell: we have talked a lot about it on our show. remember the hackers stealing nearly 15 million credit and debit card numbers, tjx 2005-2007, then it went on from there. best buy, j.c. penney, on and on, similar experiences or infiltrations in recent years and you add to the more recent newsweek and there are the stock prices we had today, jamie dimon, tip of the iceberg. dagen: you covered online attacks and cyberattacks, what do you think of the way they handled it? the breadth of the attack at target was breathtaking for sure. connell: normal people are affected by it, companies go on about how they're prepared for it but in some cases they are not, they're not staying ahead to the latest on technology and a guy yesterday using new technology having to work in some of those things like that to get ahead of the hackers. dagen: that was a concern, the new technology cards, security technologies won't be in place for another year or so. connell: you hear about companies with new ways to combat that but how many hacks will there be before those systems are in place. it is the tip of the iceberg but a lot of people like mike baker and others will tell you this is one of the more serious threats. dagen: this walmart, sears, home depot and toys r us to name a few came out and said their information has not been hit and information was not compromised but i will say this. this attack occurred in the middle of december, it only revealed its when contacted by the security writer. you got to do a better job of that even when you told your own customer. won't find out from your credit card company, your information could have been compromised. that leads to a better job about telling the public at large what is going on. otherwise you will lose business. stuart: talk about transparency that is forced transparency. and the rest of that jpmorgan call, and down 7.3%. we will talk more about it. >> two bank earnings that came out this week, we noted this was going to be a lot of focus on banks, the security breach and personal data, a huge story which is only now unfolding, a lot more going forward. jpmorgan chase, $57.93, we saw earnings for the quarter dropped 0.73%, they had weak results in the banking unit, better profits, how much they have been paying out as well pertaining to government payouts, private claims, legal claims, bernie madoff, but in the meantime shares have been trading not far off of those 2,000 levels, doing pretty well, 25%. wells fargo profits have been on the rise in the fourth quarter. the largest u.s. mortgage lender but you should see the stock down 1.3%, cutting thousands of jobs to streamline this company but obviously still under pressure. dagen: just as we feared with obamacare young adults are not signing up, at least not near the numbers that health and human services were hoping for or is necessary to make this financially feasible. connell: what they need. >> critics argue this is a growing insurance:older sicker customers who will use more in health care services than they pay in premiums dimming the system. the administration says 2 million americans elect a private insurance plan. almost a third are younger than 35. a quarter between aging, and 34 and 1/3 are older than 55. there are reports citing 38% as the goal on a roll these younger than 35 but officials refused to specify their targets. these statistics, john boehner writes, quote, there's no way to spin it, use enrollment has been a bust. when they see obamacare offers high cost for limited access to doctors of the roman goes through at all is no surprise young people aren't rushing to sign up. one health care analyst says it is too early to determine failure or success. >> too early to tell but again, there are three months left in the open enrollment period and you are going to have obviously a fair number of people who come, first contacts or wait until the end, too early to tell. >> officials say they have an appropriate mix of young parolees at this point and expect more to sign up in the next few months, they point to the trend messages is where most younger customers signed up for the end level but enrollment. there are independent studies ages matter less than the overall number of enrollees, administration targets but total enrollees for this year at 7 million, they have less than 2.5 for open enrollment. connell: this brings together something we have been talking about for years, the idea of meeting to update our nation's power grid. the research team from harvard may have an answer for us. will be important to develop a cheap battery that can store wind and solar, and the reason, thank you for coming on, so important, you have done all kinds of interviews over however many years about what topic related to renewable energy or advancements in the automobile industry, and somebody who is against it will always say it is too costly, costs too much. tell us what you have come up with and maybe you are able to help with that important front. >> a new kind of battery is able to store large amounts of power especially electric power on the grid and this is critical now because the grid is pretty reliable at present as we add solar and wind capacity we need to store more and more electricity in order to make the grade reliable. in parts of southern california right now there's more electricity being made during the day than the local grid can absorb. connell: how does it work? how much can be stored for how long? >> the new thing about our battery is it consort energy for delivery over a longer periods. when you discharge your battery typical solid battery you may be familiar with you have less than an hour before it is drained. we have a design that allows us to discharge for many hours to even days because we store the energy and chemicals outside the battery itself, that allows us to have larger and larger tanks of chemicals without driving the cost up very much. stuart: sorry to interrupt, i want to focus a little bit for the next couple seconds on the cost which i started with and we can talk about reliability and other issues and feel free, the two of you to jump in and play off of each other but how much of the difference might this make in cost? real people and what they pay monthly? >> typical retail electricity price, $0.11 a kilowatt hour. i don't know any commercial battery system now that can store the electricity and give it back for net cost increase on something like $0.04 a kilowatt hour. that is a pretty hefty markup. we have the first battery chemistry that has a good chance of coming in less than a cent per kilowatt hour because we have some chemical energy, very inexpensive chemicals whose cost is going to be something like a quarter of the penny and that allows had room for the battery system which we haven't completely cost out yet and be able to have less than a penny a kilowatt hour. connell: may be picked up on this time frame, and get into reliability. does it make any difference in terms of how effective this battery would be versus what we do now? >> the story that is available is pumping water to reservoirs and pumping back to get the power back but that is not available in a lot of areas, the midwest too flat to have that storage. we have to expand the storage and if you were to go down to the hardware store and to buy batteries that might seem like a solution but that is too expensive as mike mentioned and at the same time, the scale needed on the grid, there aren't enough metals around, lithium batteries, a fairly rare elements. not enough lithium in the world's to satisfy the need for the grid. stuart: tell us when you will see this. >> restaged right now, we were looking at sustainable -- to commercialize this, expect in two or three years to have something worth demonstrating, works really well and could be tied in to rooftop solar panels. stuart: keep us up to date because it changes the conversation to the first point we have been having about these topics, prof. gordon, thank you to both of you for coming on today. dagen: pizza hut testing out how to sell its prize targeting a younger audience. pizza by this twice. dagen: testing starts today but you have to get more details coming up. stuart: nasa with a futuristic look at our first responders and how they can get help with search and rescue during an emergency. interesting new technology in a moment. dagen: dismantling of sac. how one is -- might be forced to testify against them. as we go to break, all public traders. connell: may have noticed this, boeing, japan airlines detected a problem in the 787 main battery. let's go back to the stock exchange. nicole: the story behind this, the stock is reflecting this, stock dropped $2 in positive territory, trading 141 and change and it dropped to 1780 and recovered some. so loss of 1.3%, positive territory straight into negative territory on this news. the news is japan airlines detected smoke from boeing's 787 battery, free flight at a tokyo airport and they detected this fall in the 787 main battery and charger, liquid scene from a power pack so you see liquid and smoke certainly doesn't do well, we know that boeing had battled some issues with this in the past and so with this we see the stock moving to the lows of the day and it came off of the lows of the day but still to the downside for boeing in a story that is not over yet. dagen: thank you. pizza hut starting to sell by the slice, starting today the pizza chain will rollout pizza by the slice at two locations at $3 each. it will take 3 minutes to heat up. the concept, here are your places, york, neb. making the move in part to take on new work change, growing competition, these restaurants, let customers design their own quicker cooking beets ofs, even to put the getting in that business. would get shares of pizza hut's parent company. connell: tomorrow's business today, for you to take a look, lot of technology talk on the show today could be crawling through windows and opening doors during an emergency. the newest video you're looking at, nasa's robot city, a robot at the jet propulsion laboratory, something one day could help first responders remove debris or whatever it might be, climb ladders, turn wheels, that kind of thing, obvious practical uses for something like this in support of disaster response, dangerous situations where the human can't go or should go, explosions or chemical melt down, all kinds of uses for this robot. pretty good video. dagen: pressure mounting on matthew martoma, on trial, will he slipped on the government's real target, steve cohen? connell: only one person to ask, charlie gasparino on with his friend elizabeth no wiki and the flu season is in full swing, how can you protect yourself? pieces in half the country. we will talk about it coming up. how often does the idea of a slice of pizza -- dagen: it is the concept. we are used in new york city, the whole pie. connell: donate the night before. we will be back. dagen: that was funny. as a business owner, i'm constantly putting out fires. so i deserve a small business credit card with amazing rewards. with the spark cascard from capital one, i get 2% cash back on ery purchase, every day. i break my back around here. finally soone's recognizing me with unlimited rewards! meetings start at 11, cindy.

in 2007, 2008, basically, you know, let it rip with martoma. there is a degree of logic that it failed. one thing in elizabeth weber, i will say this, in 2009, it was bouncing around the entire blog that they were rats. that the u.s. attorney paid for people. they actually sent an informant. that was in 2009. this was a 2008, before it started to spread. >> listen, as a matter of law, we do not need martoma to say that. we need him to tee up what exactly took place. it should have been clear to the conversation to. charlie: i agree. i agree with you 100%. they speak in code. maybe that is a willful -- >> martoma will translate the code. connell: we have had this conversation. >> at the end of the day, steve cohen does not like to lose. had to know or be completely reckless about not knowing. charlie: ten conviction levels. i am so sure. i have sources. it is bouncing around the marketplace. you will have to really believe that steve cohen sat there and said -- i just think in 2008 -- >> he will not say that. we do not need him to say that. charlie: remember one thing about steinberg. the jury looked at him and basically convicted him. >> the law does not require as much as you think it requires. charlie: i just think it is lower. >> we know the ongoing investigation of steve cohen. charlie: the one thing i will say is this. if this guy was not careful, they would have gotten him when he actually had his phone calls tapped. >> no. they needed martoma. connell: let's continue this on another date. martoma cracked the code. that is what i have come up with. thank you to both of you. the flu is now widespread. we will talk about that and show you what it means for doctors and caregivers coming up on markets now. dagen: one biotech firm getting a very big investment from a bigger company. what does it mean for the development of drugs to treat rare diseases. connell: time warner cable turning down a contract. all of that ahead. markets now. keep it here. ♪ ♪ >> i am lori roth and with your fox business. consumer spending rose more than expect did last month. alcoa investing about $670 million in iowa, tennessee and saudi arabia. the company finished an upgrade at the iowa facility and will be adding 150 jobs. the demand for aluminum sheet metal should double by 2025. the china sales hit a new four-year record. that is the latest look at business from the fox business network. giving you the power to prosper. ♪ connell: the seasonal flu is now widespread in more than half the country. our next guest to tell us how to protect ourselves, from other things. he is from orlando. good to see you, sir. more people have a common cold. >> absolutely. what i tell people is, it is an analogy. a cold is like a mild winter storm. the flu is like a hurricane. the flu you have a temperature greater than 100.4. severe ♪ ♪ lakes. sore throat, cough. a cough is much milder as a cold. the flu is severe. connell: 104. all right. this may be more than i think it is. they are trying to decide whether they should come to work or not and risk spreading what they have two coworkers and other people. what goes into that?

>> well, thanks for having us. appreciate it. it is a game changer. it is transformational for the company and that it allows for us to heavily invest in translating our platform of medicines for genetic diseases. i think the investment is a testament. dagen: we should point out that it is therapeutics that target the genes to prevent them from producing certain genes. the fact that is exactly right. they won the nobel prize for medicine in 2006. it is really a breakthrough discovery. dagen: i want to know, what diseases are you targeting. how much faster could these drugs potentially come to market and reach the people who need them because of this investment?

the government shutdown threats are over or do we get a reprieve until sept. 30th? >> at least until sept. 30 the fights are over, this is the usual compromise between senate, democrats and republicans, 1500 page bill. there are plenty of things not to like but the bottom line is nobody wants to shut down the government. this bill will pass by the middle of the week in the house. a big elephant in the room is what to do about spending that is addressed, the so-called mandatory spending, medicare, medicaid, food stamps, and by sequester cuts and other attempts to reduce federal government spending so this pays the bills of the government through the end of the year but not much to reduce. dennis: total federal budget is $3 trillion per year. this is discretionary spending of $1 trillion. we have sequester cuts in place both parties agreed to that or automatic and ready to go and now all even republicans agreeing to peel those back. is that a good move? does it lack backbone? >> not fair characterization if i can correct it. there are offsets for most of the spending increases, reduction in spending somewhere else or new revenue in the form of new fees. even though the sequester cuts are not as deep as they otherwise would have been those are mostly made up for to offset the cuts. dennis: if those are available, why not keep those sequester cut in place? of >> that is what the republicans want to do but you have another side of the equation. and this is a compromise. dennis: based on what you have seen in the progress for the latest approval that washington has any chance at all in making any real reforms any time soon to that bigger part of the budget that entitlement spending? >> that is the distressing thing. this had to be done, this is paying for your groceries through the end of the year. the big question is $2 million home that you can't afford an enormous mortgage every month what do you do about that so this all the immediate problem of funding the government but that is small potatoes in washington. the question is how we're going to get a hold of the entitlement? dennis: washington can do anything right until there's a crisis facing them live interest-rate started to spike up and the cost of all the debt we have suddenly starts to spike up is that the impetus to get congress to make progress in entitlement reforms? >> you would sure think so because that will drive up the cost enormously and that is inevitable. we won't continue to have 1% inflation. the promises we made for medical health or social security that cannot be funded under the current structure dictate we find a way to do it. there are plenty of ways to deal with this problem without taking benefits from people which nobody wants to do. and the democratic leaders won't let the republicans oppose those reforms. dennis: one last curve ball you won't like giving a republican lineage, this deal today a sign that even republicans have given up their status to avoid budget cutters? >> no because democrats would argue there is too much cutting here. this is a compromise, pragmatic people on both sides of though we'll realize neither one can get everything they one. when democrats controlled white house and senate republicans can't cut everything they would like to end can't do things to stimulate economic growth. americans should see this as a compromise, not a big deal. the real problem is long-term spending. dennis: never undersell the news on cable. some much appreciate your time and in sight. what is bugging me is the chris christie scandal. we have become a nation of drama queen. the media call it bridgegate but the agenda is the chris christie scandal. the republican front runner for 2016 orchestrate retaliation against his political foes. we know is minion snarled traffic on the george washington bridge for four days because a democratic mayor ticked him off. it is a penny mean-spirited stunned. kristy denies any knowledge of it, fired a couple culprits, two hours on live tv answering reporters' questions. has anyone in government done anything close to that in a far bigger scandal?

do you think we see some kind of big deal get done and do we see any other new bidder come in? >> i think so. it means time warner cable is hot property, comcast potentially interested, charter, may be in a partnership with cablevision or even cox. they could reach by different pieces of it so the bidding war is gone and time-warner cable is the bell of the ball. dennis: i'm surprised to hear time or cable previously said we independent, better of independent apprize tag on companies often will say someone offered a great price but won't be so specific as to the $150 price tag, does it come to a negotiation over price? >> i think so. these boil down to a matter of money, time warner cable, they are on the auction block in a lot of ways, that is the exit strategy. and tremendous opportunities, tremendous suitors for them. dennis: the obama administration interfered in plenty of deals, and buying a much smaller rival t mobile but you say they would likely approve the deal involving the number 2 cable operator because this gives the sec and regulators a chance to impose rules they want that a big buyer that could resist. >> first of all if time warner cable was chopped up into different pieces and given different buyers that helps it goes through more quickly. you might see comcast for instance in key markets like new york city where you are but it is an opportunity to impose rules like net neutrality condition and the d.c. circuit court of appeals struck down a big court decision, struck down the sec attempt to regulate broadband internet access. that is a fabulous opportunity and great news for consumers and internet freedom. those types of rules in a transaction and precisely what it will try to do with cable companies and phone companies in the future. dennis: was able to get some type of net neutrality from comcast and in exchange for approving comcast by nbc universal. lying in the pace of a federal court of appeals, just this morning, the sec has lost two other court rulings, the court said sec, overstepping to impose rules forcing comcast and other cable guys in terms of how they want to price traffic. >> i hope the sec at this point tries to impose tight 2 rules, these are ancient rules designed for now extinct phone monopolies and railroads from the 1800s. on the nimble, a different animal, that would harm consumers, increase prices, it would inhibit innovation and investment. dennis: google kind of helped start this entire net neutrality push, google, netflix, apple, they don't want comcast and time warner cable to be allowed to charge them more to carry more -- netflix alone consumes one third of all night time bandwidth sell lot of consumer groups say they worry about raising prices on netflix if it pays more money than time warner cable. >> the sec didn't know market study or economic analysis before it jumped to regulate. let's see how the market development, this could be a good thing for consumers if some of these edge providers, content application providers are subsidizing consumer usage. that could keep consumer rates low and help spur investment in broadband infrastructure. could be a big win for consumers but let's matt -- led the market try and if there's a problem the government could step in and there are lots of laws already on the books that could help consumers if these internet service providers act on anti-competitive or harmful ways, plenty of laws already there. dennis: great anyone, it is a big deal and a big court ruling that could make that more valuable. >> so happy.

paul volcker finds that despite improving tax revenues state and local government finances remain in need of major fixes. peter barnes in capital hole with co-chairman of the task force with the first on fox business interview. peter: the state budget crisis taskforce issued its final report after three years of research and has a number of recommendations. we are joined by rick ravage. let's start with the highlights of your findings after three years. and highlights of recommendations. >> what we found was many states and many cities are arguably at an unsustainable course fiscally because they are contractors for the mandate of expenditures, retirement obligations, health care costs, rising faster than revenues, states were too frequently balancing their budgets by using the proceeds and assets to cover operating deficits and that by definition is not a sustainable practice. peter: one recommendation would be to stop doing that. what about the other ones? >> we pointed out what is being crowded out as a result of a fiscal stress is infrastructure investment and education, tuition and public university going up every year, three kids in public universities. for every one in a private university. rutgers university published a study that showed pre k education spending, 650 million this year more than a year before, that is not a formula for growth of our country. peter: your recommendations are multi-year financing? multiple year planning, rainy day funds, reserve funds. all of this more urgent because we had bankruptcy in detroit and a couple municipalities in caliiornia, a pr is in trouble. what isuerto rico is in trouble. what is the message you have? change the public interest is served by more transparency, cool forms of budgeting so politicians can't kick the can down the road, pretend they balance the budget by d for in writing the check to the next fiscal year for rent obligation they incurred this year or before this year. that accumulates and ultimately means that we are pouring on the next generation of dollar obligations for services that our generation received. we think that public pension underfunding is an example of this. it doesn't attract a lot of media attention. nobody really knows. every incentive in the process is to defer paying in to these pension funds as much as possible and consequently they could be underfunded by as much as $3 trillion in the united states. dennis: good luck trying to sell this to state and local authorities and fox business is paying attention. sandra: thank you so much. the s&p 500 after a rocky start in 2014 the index has fallen 1% in nine trading days this year and goldman sachs as you heard are starting to call into question whether or not the equities' rally is over and whether or not the stock market is overpriced. the cornerstone wealth management manager joins us now, thank you for joining us and we're bringing you back on because you were called for this, correct? we are not in a correction yet but maybe you will tell me we are on our way to one but the dow was up 246 points from its recent high, the s&p 14. are we entering into a correction mode? >> this may be the correction we have been waiting for but the point i make is corrections are normal part of the investing process. we had 93, 10% correction over the last 85 years, that is one a year so corrections are healthy for the market, the refresh and if we see that correction we are not going to get more bearish or get out of the market. sandra: let me hold you more to it than that. if this is a correction and you are calling it healthy for the markets does that mean we will continue this bull market we have been on for the equities market or is there a possibility we could enter into a bear market territory? >> i think we are still in a bull market, that will be supported by a healthier economy in 2014, we are seeing steady audience in payrolls and income and that means the u.s. consumer will be in a more upbeat mood and the u.s. economy is all about consumer spending. sandra: goldman sachs i reiterate said stocks are close to fair value and this is it for them. are you saying you disagree with that at this point? >> if you look at the goldman sachs report more carefully here is what they said, the market will be higher at the end of the year than it is today and if there's a 67% chance of a 10% correction that is not a real bull call. we get 10% correction on average once a year and we too think the market will be higher. sandra: jpmorgan, wells fargo, and find some reasons to be disappointed, profit numbers beat expectations. and the rest of earnings season and the stock market in general. >> i think it is. this is an unusual earning season, negative prius announcement exceeded positive pre announcements by a ratio of 10:1, a record level, corporate america said the bar very low for this earnings season, it will be easy to step over that bar and we think earnings will be up by 8% to 9% for the quarter and 10% for 2014. sandra: if we have you back two months from now, what does concern you? you made mention of the bond market, there has been some complacency, what keeps you up at night? >> i do think investors are too complacent when it comes to the bond market. in spite of assurances from the federal reserve we think interest rates will move higher again this year and investors need to keep their maturities very short because the market is going to get ahead of the fed and start moving rates higher before the federal reserve ever comes in and puts a rate increase because the economy will be continuing to improve and we think the employment rate will be 6% by the end of the year. cheryl: sandra: we finished with the stock market higher or lower for 2014? >> higher for 2014. we would not be surprised to see a gain of 80%, that will put the mark above 17,000. sandra: a lot of folks would be happy with an 8% the for the stock market

>> and always say pay attention. stuart: you look at individual stocks not the whole market? >> you can get confused by looking at too many numbers and you know what, what's going on with the market for the last four years, it's been choppy, it's been news-driven as it's trending up. if you sit out you may miss a big move. stuart: an individual stock in particular, google, it's buying thermostat maker nest. it's paying $3 billion. would you buy google? they're up 13 points now did $would you buy them? >> absolutely. google is like an et krchf. and this is a blog initiativini when they hired ray, he put them on a new path. stuart: and nest is a thermostat maker?

>> you know what's good about this. people don't talk about, they're great and apple is fantastic at up-selling and cross-selling. five years ago they had 1% of big tech spending in the world and today it's 8%. that's an eight-fold increase. they're going to use the iphone as a beachhead, and sell ipads and i-pros and apple tv and make a lot of money in china. stuart: liz, you took the opportunity i gave you yesterday, i was away and you took the opportunity to pour cold water over apple at $1,000 a share. what do you have to say? >> i don't think it will hit a thousand in a year. stuart: you're stonewalling. >> no, i'm not. i'm qualifying what i said, stuart, you're catching me. 10 million to 30 million iphones to china mobile. that was the projection. in three weeks time 1.million it's going to eat that easily. i think that michael is right it could diversify selling other things than iphones into art: i come back and you're changing your tune. >> no, i'm saying the timing for the thousand price target once they hit it. stuart: look at the big board we were down 170 yesterday. see what happens when i go away. that puts the dow at 16,300. strong profits and a couple of big names that you know, j.p. morgan, they made $5 billion profit in a 13-week period. even though they settled with the government for over a billion for bernie madoff and a raft of outgoing money because of what they did in the past. we've got wells fargo posting record profits. first stock, j.p. morgan. nicole: good news with the profit they incurred. 58.35 on j.p. morgan trading near 2000 levels, back in 2000. so that's good news there. and as you noted they've been paying out big time. 2.6 billion to settle government and private claims and over 20 billion to settle assorted legal claims and wells fargo slightly lower this morning and let's see where it is this second. they had a 11% rise in the fourth quarter profit and did cut thousands of jobs, 45.32. stuart: did i make a mistake, j.p. morgan? >> no, the hit to j.p. morgan's earnings for the madoff situation, 1.1 billion. 2.6 billion total and took a 1.1 bill hit in this quarter. stuart: next stock is gamestop. we had a guest put put it on death watch. cue the organ music, and the stock is struggling all right. it's down 15% back to 38 on gamestop. let's move away from the market towards the broader economy. only 74,000 new jobs created in december. the unemployment rate dropped to 6.7%. here comes goldman sachs today saying that that number, that that unemployment rate will fall even more, it will come down more by the end of this year because there's a whole bunch of more people who are going to be looking, not looking for work. and here is former reagan economic advisor art laffer. seems to me that that's a brutally rough picture of the employment position in america for this year? >> it's true though, it's very true. in fact, it's been true for a long time, stuart. if you look at employment to population, it has not changed over the last five years. we dropped sharply to a low and then stayed there. so, every time the unemployment rate goes down, the participation rate goes down to exactly offset it and that's been the case for a while and it's tragic and now they're talking, stuart, if you can believe it, in raising the minimum wage. do you know where the biggest damage done in the economy has been? it's not just normal everyday-- it's in the minorities, the disadvantaged, the less educated, the young. they are suffering incredibly from these economic policies of obama. it's just, it's just tragic and they use that as an excuse to further them. stuart: what's the underlying policy mistake? if we're in such a rotten situation, employment-wise, after five years of president obama and the white house, what's the basic policy mistake? >> they don't understand that there are incentives in place in the economy. if you raise the minimum wage, you are going to reduce the employment of minimum wage workers. you're going to raise the prices of products they make. and you're going to cause growth to slow down and you're also going to cause businesses over the long-term to try to substitute capital instead of those low wage workers. it's just a classic example of ignorance, of economics and that's exactly what is going on and its incredible impact will be on the poor and disadvantaged in this country, it's shocking. stuart: over the past year, you've been on the show many times and i remember times when you were saying that things are going to look brighter in the future. >> oh, they are. stuart: but how, when in the future? i mean, the president has got three more years in the white house? >> unfortunately, that's part of the future that we have to live with, stuart. i mean, i hope i've been very clear over the years that you know, it's not this year, not next year, you're going to start seeing big changes in 2016, 2017 when the political process finally rectifies the damage it's done. you've got obamacare which has to be repealed. you can't raise this minimum wage and expect good things to happen from if, but in november of this year we're going to see the senate go republican. we're going to see the house republicans pick up a large number of seats and see obama as a lame duck and in 2016 have the election. we are in 1978 today, if you want a deja vu all over again and just before reagan comes, and the boom comes, it takes obama and pelosi and reed to give you economic reform politically. >> come back real soon, art. >> oh, i will. stuart: i'm impressed there. >> you saw it happen in britain and gordon brown. you're going to see it happen in france with hollande. india, where the bjp is wreck, wreck things and you're-- excuse me the congress wrecked them and bjb is coming again. stuart: we've got three years we can wait. three years is a long time. >> thanks, stuart. stuart: thanks, art. good luck. back to our theme of the day, tech rules, but content still king. netflix bringing back its original series, lilihammer for a third season and a new series based on the adventures of marco polo. and the last of the series of breaking bad. >> they're moving into high definition television, and content is lacking. they're going to broadcast an original series and they want to own the home market. look who tried to take them over, take over that market. hulu, and a number of people. these guys written off as dead four years ago as a dinosaur, they rule. stuart: liz, are you going to-- >> i'm interested in netflix as a replacement of show time and h.b.o., people ditching subscriptions there. the name of the game is content and it's so key for netflix, also, the gateways, the bottle necks, the access to netflix, xbox is increasingly difficult to sign onto netflix and that's important for the stock. stuart: this show concentrates on key technology stocks. apple, netflix, amazon, google, a couple of others and throw them in. that's what we do, they're making the running of this economy, am i wrong? >> you're absolutely correct. stuart: thank you, you can come back. >> she makes a good point about the controls, but some entrepreneur or netflix is going to do something to make the access easier. this is very important, liz and stuart. you know, millenials live on netflix, my kids are on it all the time. some sort of device, don't go to the home theater. i invested all of this money on the home theater and they'd rather watch it on the portable. stuart: make it more accessible to my tv that's all i want. press one button and i get it. >> exactly. stuart: check the big board, where are we, down 170, back up after ten minutes only 38 points this morning. not much of a comeback. after the break, the future of the shopping mall. digital mirrors?

two america-- i'm sorry, two developments in the last 24 hours that cast doubt on the president's credibility. with three years of the obama second term still to go, this is not good news for you or your money. here is my take. number one, fox news unwraps the benghazi deceit. james rosen reveals that the military called it a terror attack within it hours of it happening, but the for two weeks the president insisted it was a demonstration inspired by a video. before the presidential election. number two, the wall street journal reports there will be no criminal prosecution in the irs scandal. again, it was in the middle of the election campaign. that the president's opponents were targeted and harassed by a powerful government agency. the in-house investigation was led by an obama donor. that's a joke. this is why more than half the people believe the president is not credible or trustworthy. throw in the deceit over keeping your plan, keeping your doctor. and the willingness to trust the iranian mullahs and i think clearly america has a problem and there are still three years to go. think about it. the economy is not doing well no matter what the white house tells you. the job market is dismal no matter what the labor secretary says. our health care is wrecked taxpayers are squeezed and the list is on and on and on. it's not a good way to start the new year. if the president is not believed or trusted don't expect our nation's problems to be addressed in a meaningful way. you can't make progress if you can't trust the guy in charge. the worst of it is, he's done it to himself. and we have to live with this for another three years. ♪ [ indistinct shouting ] [ male announcer ] time and sales data. split-seco stats.

[laughter] gave you a little time to get your passion up again. >> oh, man. stuart: to nicole, gamestop. down big, i think. >> this is tough for the shareholders today, shares down 18.5%. whoa, huge move to the down side. and this is because of sales that were disappointing. they're cutting their numbers. the sales of the games, the software games, games that go to the old consoles, the one area that they did well, where they saw the sales nearly double was in hardware because you had the new xbox one, playstation, playstation 4. so that was the area that did well. but selling of the old games and software games not good, and they compete against mobile games that are just cheaper. stuart: you know, it was just a few, i guess a week ago, that gamestop was put on death watch. that usually means it dose up. in this -- goes up. all right, nicole, thank you very much. >>> an update on the massive pre-christmas hack that exposed the personal information of as many as 110 million target customers. they've hired a company recently acquired by fire eye to help them implement new security procedures. shares of fire eye took off on the news of that deal. they've pulled back a little since, 55 on fire eye now. charles, look, if you want to look at cybersecurity, that surely is a growth area. >> it's an amazing growth area. stuart: great money. >> you really can. it's just, you know, there's a company -- golly, i think -- i'll get the symbol for you in a minute that makes the actual chips they use in europe but we don't use here, you've got to believe we're going to adopt that. stuart: it's got to come, hasn't it? the cards we use in america are relatively unsophisticated, relatively simple. if you go to europe and look at the cards they use there, there's a whole lot more imprinted into that card which makes it much more difficult to steal -- >> and i won't do this often, fire eye, i looked it up, but, obviously, when they bought this other company, their market value exploded. the stock price has been doing were vel. wall street jumped all over this company the second that target news hit december 19th. this stock has been rocking and rolling. still is, to be honest. >> you know the good news? i gave it to the morning viewers -- [laughter] >> credit where credit's due. [laughter] >> well, you can! stuart: take all of it. >> we're holding. we still have it. >> all right. stuart: look at google's stock, another big acquisition. they're taking aim at nest, a company that makes smart thermostats and smoke detectors that are connect today the internet. some are already raising concerns that this device could give hackers an opportunity to steal even more information about you, the pattern of your life, for example. an analyst from red tiger security is here with more on this. jon. jon: -- jonathan, i'm not worried about this because the worst hackers could find out when i'm at home and not at home and the sides of my heating bill. -- size of my heating bill. personally, i don't see this as a huge infringe bement of my privacy. how about you? >> i probably wouldn't be worried about one person or two people, but what if you had an aggregation of millions of information that was then overlaid on top of things like maybe google maps? then you imagine some hacker waking up in the morning and maybe like a siri voice talking to him and saying, hello, mr. tony stark -- [laughter] these five addresses are not home this week, would you like me to send these addresses to your home? because low profiles will tell you if you're home or not, and it's a great tool for burglars. stuart: okay, i got it. you're in the security business. you've got red tiger security. you do online security training, right? so you come to my company, and you talk to my i.t. people, and you tell them how to avoid, what, how to avoid hacking? that's what red tiger does? >> we also are paid to break into systems to test their security. this would be the systems of big things like power plants, pipelines, refineries, chemical plants. and then we teach these clients how to enhance their security to protect their critical infrastructure. stuart: you can't really protect against a really well organized hack, can you? >> this is definitely true. i mean, case in point just tree years ago finish three years ago we had the stuxnet superworm that took down nuclear en richment programs over in iraq, and we're still worried about that hitting u.s. infrastructure. i'm here in miami this week, and we have some really geeky guys that spend their friday nights with sautering irons and circuit boards that are breaking apart the electronics that control the switch stations and substations in neighborhoods, and they're disclosing these vulnerabilities back to the community at large and the vendors that make this equipment to really squeeze the vendors to make better products and more secure products that are put into, you know, very mission-critical cases. stuart i understand. there's a new study out, it shows that the nsa phone t.a.r.p.ing program played -- phonetapping played no role in some of the terror suspects arrested recently. wasn't that the whole point of the program? i'm moving away from your turf, but i want to comment on the reliability of the function of this mass nsa spying program. >> yeah. you know, for every report that comes program wasn't effective in defeating terrorism, there's probably other reports that say otherwise. so i don't know if you want to look at the effectiveness of a program to say if it's right or not. for example, if someone said, hey, i'm going to put a camera in your home and watch everything you're doing in your home just in case, you know, there's terrorist activities without any reason to put a camera in my home, i would feel violateed, my privacy. yet we seem to be kind of lax as a society, the fact that all of our text messages and e-mails and information about our daily lives are being potentially harvested and analyzed by the u.s. government. and then the u.s. government reports, oh, we're just having metadata. so what happens if in the future an employer wants to hire me, and they, you know, put a search out for my activities? they say, well, he tends to use his phone a lot after midnight. maybe he's doing a little too much partying. maybe we wouldn't want to hire him. so this information which is about the way we use our electronics in our lives could be used potentially to inhibit our opportunities in life. and i don't think those things are really well thought out. and then if they really got to know me, they'll know, well, he's just a hacker, so he's probably up at night anyway. stuart: you're in the red tiger security company. you're in a hot area. i hope you're making a ton of money. jonathan, thanks very much for joining us. i'm sure you're going to be a really wealthy guy. thank you, jonathan, appreciate it. >>> all right, dow industrials up 47 points now, bit of a comeback. not exactly a rebound, charles, but 47 is 47 points we'll take. >> in 2014, you'll take it. stuart: the clothing retailer h&m, i happen to know them quite well, under fire after releasing a new catalog with pictures of these women in their plus-size section. i've got to bring sandra in on this one. that person right there -- [laughter] she doesn't look plus size to me. >> that's their new be catalog, and they're calling those models plus size. a little bit curvier, you know, than their typical pep sill-thin models -- pencil-thin models, but the company has responded saying these models are using a u.s. size 14 women's clothing. unfortunately, this looks like they put the size 2 model in this size 14 clothing. [laughter] stuart: good point. nicole, come into this. we're looking at these picture, and i'm sure you've seen them. seems to me h&m is defining plus size as anybody that's not totally anorexic. >> that is ridiculous. those women are hardly plus size. they may be wearing size 14 or research, but the company themselves said, well, they've used their own sort of intuition. these women could wear a size medium if they wanted to. i just asked some of the guys, one of them said maybe they're seven feet tall? another guy said, yeah, plus size compared to a young child that's starving in africa. they have to be careful, these retailers. be careful. >> i could care less. stuart: listen, did you know in israel you're not allowed to use models who have a biomass reading below a certain level? do you know that? >> you have to let these companies do what they're going to do, and i don't think you should hold companies responsible for being role molds to young girls, i don't. stuart: all right. fair point. i'm sure we'll get viewer comment on this one.

we would have legal use of steroids in the dugout, wouldn't we? >> keyword in your very accurate description of my views is goth. the government is not involved in this. a-rod signed an agreement, he voluntarily signed an agreement called the collective bargaining agreement between the union of baseball players and major league baseball in which he agreed that he would never use these performance-enhancing drugs. this is a simple contractual obligation in which libertarians, conservatives, progressives, everybody believes. if you don't enforce contracts, we don't have society, and he violated that contract. stuart: so baseball could still turn around and say not in this dugout. >> yes, yes. just as you and i have freedom of speech on the street corner, our bosses can say there's certain things we don't want you talking about in the front of our cameras, and they have the right. stuart: marijuana has been legalize inside colorado and washington state. >> you can't use it, everybody who plays for mlb who's signed the players' agreement can't use it. stuart: but some football players are saying we need this, and we're going the use it -- >> medicinal. stuart: medicinal, yes. wait a minute. wait a second. >> comparable rules, but i haven't read them. baseball's rules i've read. stuart: but steroids have a me dissal use, recovery from injury. doesn't that give you a back door entry into the dugout? >> well, no, because this is the decision of a private organization, mlb, and the manner in which it wants its employees, the players, to behave. if the players don't want to behave the way management wants them to, let them go form their own mlb in which all the performance- enhancing drugs they want can be freely taken. stuart: okay. separate the argument. do you approve of the use of steroids in the dugout? >> no -- stuart: regardless of what their employment contract says? >> well, i can't say that because it depends upon what the wishes of the owner of the dugout. and the wishes of the owner of the dugout, mlb -- which is a corporation consisting of the teams -- has said, no. it's their private property, it's their private company. they can do with it what they want. maybe this'll explain better my views. roger clemens was prosecuted for lying to congress about the don'ts of his blood. -- contents of his blood. congress has no business asking him about the contents of his blood. but if he had lied to mlb about the contents of his blood, that would violate an agreement he signed with mlb, and mlb could punish him. stuart: so you see a way to legalize all drugs but still keep them out of major league sports? >> absolutely. stuart: okay. >> now, i don't know that we're going to go in that direction, but you can see the trend with respect to marijuana. as for overturning the arbitrator's decision, and there were three arbitrators, mlb be chose one, the players' union chose one, and then those two chose the third, and they voted 2-1 to us pend him. the representative -- suspend him. the arbitrator that the players' union chose sided with with-rod. a-rod did not contradict the evidence against him, and he didn't testify. so if you read the report, you sees the unrefuted. >> you know what overturning arbitrators are for? >> only if they were corrupt or made a profound error like two plus two equals 22. >> the idea that you can chew on a loss zenning, go out and perform well and by the end of the game there's no test, no element of testosterone in your body. >> in a-rod's case, he did that. he also tried to buy the company so he could destroy their records. stuart: yes. >> not a good thing to do. stuart: thank you, judge. good to see you. >>> check this out, ford's new f-150, the most popular truck in the country for years and years and years. now, that model unlike any ford has ever produced. we've got one outside, we're going to try and set -- well, he's going to try and sell it to me in a moment. must♪ ♪ [ me announcer ] this is the story of the dusty basement at 06 35th street the old dining table at 25th and hoffman. ...and the little room above the strip mall f roble avenue. ♪ this magic momt it is the story of where every great idea begins. and of those o believed they had the power to do more. dell is honored to be part of some of the world'great stories. that began much the same w ours did. in a little dorm room -- 2713. ♪ this magic moment ♪ ♪ this magic moment so ally bank has a that wothat's correct.a rate. cause i'm really nervous about getting trapped. why's that?

>> well, you know, for our customers, to us, we've tested this thing. ten million miles of built ford tough torture testing, and when we say a truck is built ford tough, our customers know that meets a certain standard. so they have confidence. and we've tested this not just in our own test, we've had it out with customers who are really hard on their vehicles, those who are in mining, construction, utilities. stuart: built in america?
